I have recently been awarded a research studentship by the
Faculty of Medicine, University of Glasgow. My intention is to examine
the current status of parasitic infection in the developed countries.
There's plenty of work going on in this area in terms of AIDS-related
illness, few people seem to interested in parasitic infections in
immunocompetent hosts. Likely starting places for my research
are the epidemiology of gastrointestinal protozoa in Scotland and the
epidemiology of Enterobius vermicularis in Glasgow. I would very much
like to hear from anyone interested in this field.
