The DeRisi Lab focuses on genomic approaches to the study of infectious disease. Specifically, we are studying Plasmodium falciparum, the causative agent of the most deadly form of human malaria. We are also involved in a major effort for the discovery of new viral pathogens associated with diseases of unknown etiology.
