For some 25-years, Prof. David Dunne has carried out field-based research on human schistosomiasis in disease endemic rural areas of Africa, in long-term partnership with colleagues in Uganda, Kenya and Mali, and more recently collaborations also in Ghana, Gabon, and Tanzania with Programme funding from the EC and Wellcome Trust. We integrate this field-based work with molecular and genomic techniques in a wide-ranging multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding of schistosomiasis and other human parasitic diseases.
