Dr Mark Robinson’s research focuses on helminth parasites and how they interact with their hosts at a molecular level. Of particular interest are peptidases, immunomodulators and extracellular vesicles secreted by trematodes such as liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) and rumen fluke (Calicophoron daubneyi) as these have critical roles during infection and pathogenesis. The overarching aim of this work is to develop new strategies to protect animals and humans from parasitic infections or to improve diagnosis.Find out more
