UNDERSTANDING AND EXPLOITING WEAKNESSES IN

Malaria Transmission Biology

ABOUT US

Welcome to the Lindner Laboratory at Penn State in the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.

 

Simply stated: our work couples molecular parasitology and structural biology to understand the malaria parasite (Plasmodium spp.), so that we can identify and exploit weaknesses in the parasite’s development and transmission. We are located in the cross-college, interdisciplinary Millennium Science Complex and work alongside scientists who tackle problems of infectious disease from atomic to population scales.

Explore the rest of this site to learn more about our research interests, the current members of our group, and to see if we might be a good fit for your next scientific pursuits.

Huck Center for Malaria Research

 

We are a part of the Huck Center for Malaria Research (CMaR) at Penn State, where Scott serves as Co-Director with Manuel Llinas. We meet monthly for internal and external speakers, and organize the Pennsylvania Parasitology Conference (PAraCon) in late July.

Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics

 

We are a part of the Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics (CIDD) at Penn State, which brings together researchers with a vast scope of work, from host/pathogen interactions, computational modeling, evolution, virulence, and vector biology.

 

Center for Structural Biology

We are a part of the Center for Structural Biology at Penn State, which includes researchers that want to apply cryo TEM approaches to a wide range of biological problems.
