Welcome to the web site for the laboratory of Dr. Ahmed Aly.

Dr. Ahmed Aly's research focuses on the biology and host-parasite interactions of the malaria parasite in the mosquito and the mammalian hosts. He uses his expertise in Plasmodium targeting techniques in the generation of attenuated parasites as live vaccines and tailor-made transgenic Plasmodium parasite strains as tools to explore the functions of various Plasmodium proteins and their essential roles in the malaria parasite life cycle. His lab uses rodent malaria parasite models and Anopheles mosquitoes to generate and study all life cycle stages of Plasmodium.
