Krystyna Cwiklinski is a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Biological Sciences, Queen’s University, Belfast, Northern Ireland. Following her PhD studying Trichinella serine proteases at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, Krystyna moved to the University of Liverpool to carry out post-doctoral work on anthelmintic resistance in parasites of horses – the cyathostomins – and the ruminant parasite Fasciola hepatica (liver fluke).

Her current work at Queen’s University is carried out in Professor John Dalton’s laboratory and focusses on using genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic tools to understand host-parasite interactions, parasite biology and biochemistry and parasite development with the long-term view of developing new control methods, therapeutics and vaccines.
