LIM/49 - Laboratório de Protozoologia

O Laboratório de Protozoologia é ligado ao Departamento de Moléstias Infecciosas e Parasitárias da Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo (FMUSP).

Linhas de pesquisa: protozoologia humana e estudo das grandes endemias, como malária, leishmaniose, a tripanossomíase americana, a toxoplasmose e outras, nos seus aspectos epidemiológicos, parasitológicos, moleculares, diagnósticos, clínicos, de intervenções terapêuticas, vacinas e controle de vetores, através de estudos experimentais, hospitalares ou de campo nas áreas de maior ocorrência do país e do exterior.
