Researcher Name: Sunter, Jack

Research Area(s): Microbiology

Affiliation: Oxford Brookes University

Country: United Kingdom

Website 

Scientific Interests:

In my lab, we use the flagellated eukaryotic parasites Trypanosoma brucei and Leishmania mexicana to understand the fundamental processes that define the cell organisation underlying parasite interactions with their hosts and vectors. The distinctive shape of trypanosomes and Leishmania is formed by a corset of cross-linked microtubules that are just beneath the cell membrane and both have a flagellum that provides the propulsive force enabling them to move. We focus on understanding the morphogenesis of cytoskeletal-membrane interfaces that contribute to i) cell and substrate attachments, ii) interaction with the insect vector and mammalian host. To do this we use a range of modern molecular cell biology techniques combined with both light end electron microscopy.

This offer applies to trainees/researchers eligible for the following fellowships

PROBio-Africa Fellowships, IUBMB Wood-Whelan Research Fellowships, IUBMB Early-Career Research Fellowships
