Welcome to Dr. Zhu Lab

The research in our lab focuses on the molecular biology and biochemistry of parasitic protists, including Cryptosporidium and coccidia (Eimeria spp.). Major research interests include the parasite metabolism, drug targets and drug development, evolution of apicomplexans, host-pathogen interactions, and functional genomics. Other research areas include the parasites in wild quail and exotic birds…. Read more“Welcome to Dr. Zhu Lab”
