Veterinary Parasitology and Immunology

Group Description

Veterinary Parasitology and Immunology 5.00/5 (1 Review )

My research group focuses on host-pathogen interactions, and is actively involved in understanding how helminths interfere with protective immunity to bacterial infections. It also has developed intellectual property in parasite vaccine development, most notably for controlling liver fluke infection in farm animals . More recently, our lab has been studying the interaction of equine small strongyles with the equine bacterial gut microbiome, and with systemic and local inflammation.. The group enjoys good collaborative relationships with many other groups in Ireland and internationally, and forms part of the strong One Health theme through the School Veterinary Medicine, cognate schools (SBBS, SMMS) and the Conway Institute.
