Research in David Sibley's lab focuses on the mechanisms of motility, tissue migration and cell invasion by intracellular parasites. The primary parasite studied is Toxoplasma gondii, which provides an excellent model for genetic, cell biological and biochemical studies. Many of the underlying mechanisms are conserved, making these studies relevant to other parasites such as malaria and cryptosporidium.
