Systems Biology of Biological Clocks

Author: Steve Haase, Ph.D.

Haase and Takahashi Groups find evidence for intrinsic clocks in malaria parasites.

Duke Today, HHMI, The Scientist, and Science News all reported on recent work from our lab as well as from the Takahashi lab indicating that the malaria parasite has an intrinsic clock!

“The idea is, if we can learn these mechanisms then we have targets potentially for new antimalarial treatments.” – Steve Haase, from The Scientist

“If we can figure out if and how the malaria parasite synchronizes the ticking of its clock with that of its host (..) we might be able to disrupt those signals and help the human immune system better fight these invaders.” – Steve Haase, from Duke Today
