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.
