It sounds like science fiction: An alien invader infects our brains and makes us homicidal, suicidal or just plain crazy. But there’s truth in every tale: we’re looking for ways to disarm a parasite that really does invade brains and change behavior – in mice and possibly in humans!

Viruses, Bacteria and Parasites! Oh My! | Center for Infectious Disease Research
If you're confused about the differences between viruses, bacteria and parasites – and their relation to disease – we're here to help.
Which diseases cause the most deaths? | Center for Infectious Disease Research
The infectious diseases that we study cause about twice as many deaths as diabetes and disproportionately affect poor and marginalized people. And the mortality rate for these infectious diseases has stalled – or worsened – over the last few decades.

Scientists from The Center for Infectious Disease Research, in collaboration with Fred Hutch, have used precise genetic engineering to alter the parasite that causes malaria and have demonstrated that these altered parasites did not cause infection in 10 individuals but instead, stimulated a robust immune response. This weakened parasite strain can be developed into a malaria vaccine.
