Mark F. Wiser, PhD
Education & Affiliations
Mark Wiser's primary interest is the molecular and cellular biology of protozoan parasites and their interactions with the hosts. Major research accomplishments include the description of proteins synthesized by the malaria parasite and exported to the host cell; a proposed novel secretory pathway of the malarial parasite which functions to target proteins to the host erythrocyte, as well as a characterization of protein kinases and chaperones of the malarial parasite. He also teaches a medical protozoology course and has written a text book (Protozoa and Human Disease) on the topic.
