Research Title:
Unfolding Germline Development in the Human Parasite Schistosoma using Nano Scale Tools

Abstract:
We will uncover novel cellular pathways by which environmental influences are transmitted across generations. We will study a human parasitic flatworm, called schistosome, since its germline development involves converting a somatic stem cell into a germ cell, which breaches a fundamental barrier in development. This biology was not previously tractable, but our study is enabled by a novel nanodelivery system that we propose to develop.
