Within our Department of Parasitology, there are many possibilities for students to do a research traineeship in the laboratory (study: Medicine, Biological Sciences, (Medical) Biology, HBO) or in the tropics (study: Medicine, Biological Sciences, (Medical) Biology, and Veterinary Sciences). Both research traineeships in the laboratory and research traineeships in the tropics are available.
More information of our traineeships focused on:
- Immunological basis of host-parasite interactions: co-infections and its relationship with modern inflammatory diseases.
- Parasite- (and host-) glycoconjugates: their identification, their potential as drug targets or vaccine candidates, and their role in host-parasite interactions, with special emphasis on schistosomiasis.
- Malaria research: development of vaccines, identification of new drug targets and vaccine candidates and the analysis of molecular mechanisms of host-parasite interactions that are associated with disease
- Development and application of novel diagnostic approaches for (mostly intestinal) protozoa and helminths with the aim to understand clinical presentation and transmission patterns in endemic setting
