The intra-erythrocytic stage of the human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, employs two metallo-aminopeptidases, termed PfM1AAP and PfM17LAP, in the terminal stages of hemoglobin digestion. Inhibitors of these enzymes exhibit anti-malarial activity and, hence, either one or both enzymes are potential anti-malarial drug targets.
Everyone in the McGill community is welcome to attend a PhD oral defense. Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of our PhD candidates.
You are invited to attend a seminar by Josée Fiset, Co-Founder and Vice-President Retail Network, Boulangerie Première Moisson.

Effects of batter formulation, pre-drying time and pre-heating temperature on surface characteristics and microstructure of fried batter using scanning electron microscopy and image processing techniques were investigated. The study also evaluated different fractions of inter-particle spaces of fried batter when occupied by air, moisture and fat. The effects of the parameters on porosity and mass transfer of fried batter were also studied.
