Research

Professor Webster and her research group employ a transdisciplinary approach towards improving our understanding of the evolution, epidemiology, behaviour and control of parasites and pathogens of humans and animals.

Key current major research projects and programmes within our group include:

Population genetic structure of Schistosoma mansoni and Schistosoma haematobium under contrasting control regimes (SCORE)

Epidemiology and evolution of zoonotic schistosomiasis in a changing world (ZELS)
