  • Strain-specific genome evolution in Trypanosoma cruzi


Welcome to the Tarleton Research Group. Under the direction of Dr. Rick Tarleton, we are a dynamic cohort of scientists studying the different mechanisms behind Chagas disease and ultimately the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi. Through immunological, genetic, classical in vivo and in vitro approaches we aim to push the limits on developing tools to better understand this neglected tropical disease.
