I want to understand how parasitic nematode worms work, and I'm pursuing this by asking these inter-linked research questions.
- What is the genetic basis of the parasitic lifestyle of Strongyloides spp?
- How does the within and outwith host environment control nematode developmental decisions, particularly in Strongyloides spp?
- What immune responses do wild animals make, and what drives this?
- For free-living nematodes, such as C. elegans, how do phenotypically plastic developmental decisions trade-off with other life-history traits?
