About This PhD Project

Project Description

Paramphistomes are becoming more important in the UK, but we know very little about their development in their snail intermediate host, Galba (Lymnaea) truncatula. Using our Galba colony you will study the development and pathology of paramphistomes in the snails, look at their potential development in other UK snails and the survival of infected snails under UK conditions as well as possible interactions with other parasites. You will study the response of paramphistomes to anthelmintics in vitro to see if a test can be developed to detect drug resistance to oxyclozanide when it occurs.

When applying please select ’Veterinary Sciences PhD’ within the Faculty of Health Sciences.
