Identifying Phagocytic Receptors for Entamoeba Histolytica


Adam graduated from UVM in ’07 with degrees in Biochemistry and Biology. He joined the CMB program in ’09 after working in Dr. Karen Lounsbury’s lab for 2 years. His research focuses on identifying phagocytic receptors for Entamoeba histolytica, one of the leading causes of disenteric disease.
