2019-11-06 Dr Thavy Long
Dr. Thavy Long is a new Assistant Professor in the Institute of Parasitology, starting in September 2019. Dr. Long obtained her MSc thesis in Genetics and Microbiology and Ph.D. in Cell Biology from the University of Lille (France). It was during her Ph.D. that she really developed an interest in the molecular and cellular biology of helminths and particularly of Schistosoma mansoni, a parasitic flatworm of humans. Her research will focus on finding new ways to monitor the development of drug resistance in helminth parasites.
The Institute of Parasitology is one of the oldest recognized centres of interdisciplinary research in Canada. We focus on parasitic organisms, the relationship with their host and the means to limit the impact of parasitic disease on health and wellbeing.
The Institute maintains a close working relationship with the McGill Centre for Tropical Diseases, the Faculties of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Medicine, and Science of McGill University.
We host an active Graduate Research program with students from Canada and around the world at the MSc and PhD level. An MSc degree typically can be completed in 2 years and a PhD in 5 years. Students wishing to apply for a graduate student position should review the information on our programs and the application procedures here.
