Instituto de Medicina Molecular, University of Lisbon

My name is Mariana De Niz. I am a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Luisa Figueiredo’s lab at the Institute of Molecular Medicine in Lisbon, Portugal. My work focuses on understanding the biophysics and dynamics of the parasite Trypanosoma brucei (causative of sleeping sickness), in various tissues of mammalian hosts. I am particularly interested in microscopy methods to image host-parasite interactions, and am keen on developing new methods that enable visualising and investigating these interactions. In my PhD and previous postdoc, I worked on investigating various stages of the malaria-causative parasite Plasmodium. I was particularly interested in understanding parasite tropism, mechanisms of sequestration, and host cell organelle manipulation during Plasmodium liver stage development.
