In August 2022, the BCHC welcomed a new member – Dr Gabriel Rinaldi.
Dr Rinaldi joins us from The Wellcome Sanger Institute. He was awarded the highly esteemed Future Leaders Fellowship by the UK Research and Innovation body.
Over the next 4 years, his research will be based on improving our understanding of blood fluke schistosome biology. With a particular focus on early intra-mammalian development of the parasite and its unique sexual biology. He will be using cutting-edge molecular biology approaches to ultimately reveal novel strategies for combating schistosomiasis.
A warm welcome to Aberystwyth University, Gabriel!
