Parasitology Research Lab

The focus of research is on biochemical and molecular studies of diagnostic, therapeutic and vaccine candidates in helminth parasites, particularly the tropical liver fluke Fasciola gigantica. He studies host-parasite interaction, pathology and immunology of parasite infection. We work on the anthelmintic action of triclabendazole (TCBZ) in liver fluke following in vitro and in vivo methods, and the anthelmintic efficacy of natural/plant-derived products as a supplement/alternative to chemotherapy against parasitic infections
