Parasitology and aquatic pathobiology
Section for Parasitology and aquatic pathobiology studies parasites and other infections in humans and animals including fish. The main focus is on population and infection biology, host immunity and parasite-induced immune-modulation, parasitic zoonoses and control.
The section uses animal models and in vitro systems and develops diagnostics, vaccines and prevention and control programs. Traditionally we have a strong focus on collaboration with developing countries.
The Aquatic Pathobiology Lab (AQUA)We work with fish health and fish welfare. We focus on vaccinology, basic immunology, diagnostics and treatments.
Parasites and the Environment (PARAENVI)Research in helminth infections and malaria in humans; the impact of drug based treatment and disease control, infection, transmission, host immune response.
Veterinary Parasitology (VETPAR)Focus on parasite infections in domestic animals applying field studies, animal experimental models and advanced in vitro systems, encompassing parasites, their biology, disease impact and control.
Parasitic Zoonoses (PARZOO)Our research focus on parasitic zoonoses and all our activities apply a One Health approach. We work in international networks in in Denmark and abroad.
Parasites, immunology and gut health (PIGH)We work on molecular and immunoparasitology, and interactions between gut parasites, the microbiota, and host diet and metabolism.
