Research

Research Interests

My research group focuses on host-pathogen interactions, and is actively involved in understanding how helminths interfere with protective immunity to bacterial infections. It also has developed intellectual property in parasite vaccine development, most notably for controlling liver fluke infection in farm animals and sea-lice infestation in farmed salmon and trout. It also studies the interaction of protozoan parasites with host cells. The group enjoys good collaborative relationships with many other groups in Ireland and internationally, and forms part of the strong infection, immunity and inflammation research theme running through the School Veterinary Medicine, cognate schools (SBBS, SMMS) and the Conway Institute.
