Helminth infections and control of viral STIs

Host: Prof Anna-Lise Williamson [Div of Virology/IDM]
Bill Horsnell’s research interests focus on host immunity to parasitic helminth infections. His research addresses how specific cellular and molecular mechanisms regulate host immunity to helminth infection, primarily by using transgenic mouse models. This work has developed into understanding how helminth associated immunity function in other immune scenarios (such as re-infection, vaccination and maternal transfer of immunity) and how these responses influence other diseases (including allergy, salmonella, mTB and viral infections). Bill’s team has also investigated many of these findings in human studies throughout Africa and Europe.
