Professor Iain Barber Inaugural Lecture

Mind-bending worms and zombie fish: exploring the interactions between parasites, disease and animal behaviour in a changing world

Iain Barber
Networking | Public lectures

This lecture will focus on how Iain's research has helped develop a better understanding of the important role that parasites play in determining the behaviour, ecology and reproductive success of their host animals, and how these complex interactions are now being impacted by global environmental change. Iain will explore how this work has developed over his career and how it has benefited substantially from productive collaborations with neuroscientists, mathematicians, molecular ecologists and bioinformaticians. Iain's aim will be to tell an interesting research story, but to also weave into this a narrative about developing a successful academic career.
