Early this September, BCHC PhD students attended the 11thMolecular and Cellular Biology of Helminth Parasites conference in Hydra, Greece. Against the picturesque background of the Aegean Sea, Tom Gasan presented a poster detailing a novel vaccine candidate in the fight against Schistosomiasis. Chelsea Davis and Clare Collett both presented posters on Veterinary Parasitology. All three students gave successful ‘elevator pitches’ prior to the display of their posters. This was a fantastic opportunity of the students to establish new contacts and potential collaborations in the area of helminthology all against a stunning backdrop.
