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

Using field collected parasite and vector samples & parasite genetic markers we aim to determine the impact of different schistosomiasis control programs on the schistosome parasite populations in endemic areas of Niger and Tanzania. The results will help inform & guide schistosomiasis and NTD control programs in endemic countries as well as further our understanding of schistosome biology and evolution
