About the Project
Our lab (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jo_Cable) investigates host-parasite dynamics and the ecosystem impacts of invasive species. Much of this research (in silico, in vitro and in vivo) is based on aquatic systems, particularly fish pathogens, which affect host behaviour, metabolism and performance, but we also research water-borne human pathogens and zoonotic infections. Identifying the factors that drive parasite transmission and spread of invasive species has direct applications for animal and human health, sustainable food sources and the pet trade. Consequently, most of our PhD projects are co-designed with stakeholders, involving interdisciplinary research. If interested in such research, whether laboratory or field based, please contact us to discuss specific research projects.
