Research Area

Our research focuses on the etiology,epidemiology, prevention and control of important parasitic zoonoses, especially on the biological control agents and mechanism of vector-borne schistosomiasis japonica, immunology and molecular diagnosis of alveolar echinococcosis, functional genes and proteins of Trichinella spiralis, and developmental biology of model organism Caenorhabditis elegans.
