Rick Maizels, PhD

Professor of Parasitology

We aim to integrate detailed studies at the level of individual parasite molecules with system-level immunology of suppressing inflammatory diseases and inducing protective immunity. Our techniques combine molecular biology of parasite genes, protein function and structure, cellular immunology and host gene expression, and a range of pathology models representing allergy, autoimmunity and Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
