Brief description My research goal is to eliminate parasitic worm infestations globally. These parasites cause substantial illness and affect the world's poorest people. Programs that drug treat infected individuals operate but these are neither effective nor sustainable. Our research has shown that additional measures, such as vaccination and health education, are needed and we aim to develop and field test a combination of interventions that will lead to their sustainable control and eventual elimination.
