Research in my laboratory has three major components and six focus areas that are interrelated and complementary to each other. These major components include the study of the basic immunological mechanisms of pathology caused by experimental Trypanosoma cruzi infection in mice; the study of the biology and epidemiology of Chagas disease in Ecuador and in the United States; the improvement of the safety of the blood supply in developing countries; and the Healthy Living Initiative. Activities related to these research foci take place in my laboratory at Ohio University, Athens, OH, as well as in the Center for Infectious Disease Research at Catholic University, Quito, Ecuador.
