Studying host-parasite interactions that involves disciplines like pathology, immunology, molecular biology and gastroenterology. Developing diagnostics for veterinary parasites/pathogens. Studying biodiversity of parasites of North American wildlife.
Dr. Diel’s research focuses the molecular mechanisms underlying virus-host interactions and more specifically on the mechanisms underlying viral immune evasion that contribute to virus virulence and disease pathogenesis. My goal in studying virus-host interactions ...
Our laboratory studies antibody-mediated immune responses to the protozoan parasite, Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, a major pathogen of freshwater fish. We have additional interests in the production of recombinant membrane proteins more generally as subunit vaccines ...
