Parasitology and Microbiology

Members of this research group contribute to the cross-faculty research theme on Infectious Disease Transmission and Biology.

The interests of this research group include tropical infectious diseases and their insect vectors, the evolution of viruses, the pathology of microbes including bacteria of the human gut, and environmental exposure to potentially harmful micro-organisms. Basic research into the properties of these various microbial threats is performed as well as applied research into ways to combat their effects or control their transmission.
