Thorey Kolbrun Jonsdottir

PhD student


Thorey’s PhD project is looking into protein export by the Plasmodium translocon of exported proteins (PTEX) during the asexual blood-stage of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. PTEX is essential for parasite survival and we need to gain more knowledge on how it operates before we can exploit it as a drug target.
