Wangwiwatsin, Arporn (Koi)

Koi is interested in host-parasite interactions and biology of all sort of parasites. She is currently working on parasitic flatworms Schistosoma mansoni, aiming to functionally characterise molecular interactions between the parasites and their mammalian host. Her current work utilises high-throughput methods such as RNA sequencing and bioinformatics as well as molecular biology.
