Roberto Docampo is Professor and Barbara and Sanford Orkin/Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar at the University of Georgia. His research goal is to discover metabolic pathways in human parasites that may be essential for their survival but may not find an equivalent counterpart in their host. Current areas of research involve the study of acidic calcium stores (acidocalcisomes) in the parasites that cause Chagas disease (Trypanosoma cruzi) and African sleeping sickness (Trypanosoma brucei group), and their role in ion homeostasis and osmoregulation, and the development of drugs that inhibit the isoprenoid pathway in these parasites.
