We work on understanding the biology of the major parasites of both humans and animals. Of particular interest is gaining an understanding of immunity and the contribution of genetics to host susceptibility and parasite immune evasion strategies. These core interests underpin the search for novel immunotherapies for the major tropical diseases including gastrointestinal nematodes, filariasis, malaria, trypanosomiasis and schistosomiasis.
