BCHC welcomes PhD student as part of knowledge exchange

In early June the BCHC hosted a visit from Alice Costain. Alice is a 3rd year PhD student at the Leiden University Medical Center who is currently working in Andrew MacDonalds laboratories at Manchester University. Alice came to Aberystwyth to gain training in the handling of our infected snails and processing of parasitic worms. While here, Alice also presented a seminar on her research looking at the effect of Schistosomiasis infection on gut biology.
