  Dr. Geetha Bansal,

  or Dr. Juan Pizarro,   Molecular tools are valuable for
 jpizarro@tulane.edu     investigating population structure of
                         parasites, origin and spread of drug
                         resistant alleles. Investigation of
                         population structure of P. falciparum
                         parasite from late 1990s to 2010 , has
  1440 Canal Street      provided important insights in
     Suite 2210          understanding how drug resistant
  New Orleans, LA
                         alleles have evolved and spread in
       70112
    504.988.3561
                         Peru. In addition, it provided clues to
                         understand the genetic origins of HRP2 deleted P.
                         falciparum parasites in this region.

                         Dr. Udhaykumar is Chief of the Genetics and Immunology
                         Laboratory at the CDC Malaria Branch. His laboratory is
                         interested in studying the origins and spread of drug
                         resistant malaria parasites in different parts of the world,
                         determining the prevalence and genetic origins of HRP2
                         deleted P. falciparum parasites in South America,
                         developing novel molecular tools for use in resource limited
                         settings.
