I did my PhD at McGill University in the department of microbiology and immunology on the host-parasite interactions of  the Leishmania parasites. I am currently studying public health at the University of British Columbia.

In this diary I  mostly discuss published research that I find fascinating. My main interests are Immunology and Microbiology and Parasitology,  especially host-pathogen interactions.  Friends and colleagues are always welcome to send in posts or articles of interest.
