Welcome to The Ferguson Lab

Our research is multi-disciplinary and involves defining:

  • The "structural repertoire" of the parasite glycoproteins.
  • The "biosynthetic repertoire" of necessary glycosyltransferases and processing enzymes needed to create the structural repertoire.
  • The "metabolic repertoire" of sugar nucleotides, and their biosynthetic and transporter proteins, needed to fuel the biosynthetic repertoire.
