Schistosomiasis Research

Our projects on schistosome immuno-epidemiology can be divided into the following:

  1. Characterizing the Schistosoma haematobium immunome (parasite proteomics, molecular biology, genomics and host immunology, genomics).
  2. Investigating the host-parasite cross talk ( e.g. regulation of the host immune system by schistosomes)
  3. Population biology of human schistosome infection in natural infections and following.
  4. Co-infections and co-morbidities in schistosome exposed populations.
