During her Ph.D., Manisha focused on using bioinformatic tools to design multi-epitope vaccines to different pathogens including Plasmodium, Leishmania, SARS-CoV-2, Rhizopus, and Enterococcus. As a postdoctoral fellow at MPBS, she is applying her experience to identify conserved PfEMP1 sequences across clinical parasite isolates that mediate parasite adhesion to endothelial receptors such as CD36; toward design of vaccines that will block parasite adhesion.
