Dr. Gustavo Arrizabalaga has been studying the cell biology of the pathogenic parasite Toxoplasma gondii for over fifteen years. He received his Ph.D. in Biology from MIT under the mentorship of Dr. Ruth Lehmann. His doctoral work focused on developmental biology and translational regulation using Drosophila as a model system. From 1999 to 2004 Dr. Arrizabalaga did a post-doctoral fellowship with Dr. John Boothroyd at Stanford University School of Medicine, where he began focusing on how Toxoplasma gondii exits its host cell. From 2004 to 2012 he was a faculty member at the University of Idaho where he established an independent research group. In 2012, he joined the Departments of Pharmacology and Toxicology and Microbiology and Immunology as an Associate Professor. He was promoted to full professor in 2017.
