Babesiosis is a tick borne, life threatening disease prevalent in the Northeastern regions of the country. The aim of my project is to establish an ex-vivo culture for the human babesiosis pathogen, Babesia microti. Through the establishment of the culture I aim at testing the role of Babesia microti Surface Antigen 1 (BmSA1) in invasion and checking for it as a potential vaccine candidate.
