Evaluating Host-Parasite Interplay In Individual Tissues

Grant number: DP110103175 | Funding period: 2011 - 2014

Completed

Abstract

The immune system of the host and the infecting parasite has coevolved into a sophisticated balance of power. This project will explore this balance using Schistosoma japonicum infection in sheep and determine immune mechanisms unleashed by the host in various tissues as well as the response of the parasite to these attacks.
