Professor Rick Maizels

Principal Investigator

Rick Maizels is Professor of Parasitology at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Molecular Parasitology in the University of Glasgow's Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation. He is interested in how and why parasites manipulate the sophisticated mammalian immune system, and how that system has evolved in the face of parasite immunomodulatory strategies. Rick moved to the University of Glasgow in 2016; between 1995 and 2015 he held the Chair of Zoology at the University of Edinburgh, and was previously Professor of Parasite Immunology at Imperial College London, where he moved in 1983. Prior to this, he held postdoctoral positions at the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) in London (1979-1983), as well as UCLA (1977-1979) and California Institute of Technology (1976-1977). He holds a BSc degree from University College London and gained his PhD in Immunology from the NIMR.

Danielle Smyth

Postdoctoral Researcher

Danielle Smyth's scientific career has a theme running through it: molecules and poking about in intestines or poo. Danielle's research in molecules and intestinal tracts has taken her up the evolutionary scale from pathogenic factors found in bacteria to cellulases from anaerobic fungi (found in the forestomach of the kangaroo) and onto immuno-modulatory molecules from gut dwelling parasitic worms. Continuing this theme, in 2013 Danielle moved to Scotland and joined the Maizels lab to study the effect parasite molecules have on models of inflammatory bowel disease (Funded by The Kenneth Rainin Foundation). Danielle's work has been recently published in Nature Communications and she continues to investigate helminth molecules (and poking about in intestines) in the quest to find novel therapies for inflammatory conditions such as IBD. Danielle holds a BSC with Honours degree and PhD in Microbiology from The University of Queensland, Australia.
