Congratulations to Justin Fellows, of the Striepen Lab, for being awarded a highly competitive two-year fellowship from the American Heart Association. Justin studies the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii, which chronically infects about 20% of the U.S. population. He studies the mechanism by which essential proteins are imported into the apicoplast, which is a promising drug target.
