Friend or Foe - the parasites that live inside us
Scottish doctors, scientists and explorers discovered many of the most important parasitic diseases and pioneered research to find treatments and prevention strategies. This talk will look at examples of different host parasite relationships illustrating some that can be deadly, those that live inside us and may change our behaviour to how parasites can be good for us.
