Welcome to the Hallem Lab @ UCLA!
HOST SEEKING AND INFECTIVITY IN PARASITIC NEMATODES
We study the neural basis of sensory-driven parasitic behaviors. Our research, which lies at the interface of parasitology and neurobiology, uses both parasitic and free-living nematodes as model systems. The overall goals of our research are to understand how parasitic worms use sensory cues to locate and infect human hosts.
