The Host and Parasites group conducts basic and applied research in the areas of host-parasite interactions. Emphasis is on: 1) Novel techniques to detect and phenotypically analyze infectivity of parasites, 2) Epidemiology of zoonotic parasites, and 3) The use of parasites as model organisms, in particular in relation to toxicity and drug potency.
