Improving Parasite Eradication

Transforming the way we look at lymphatic filariasis will improve the way we look at parasite eradication on a global scale. The Eck Institute for Global Health supports research being done by Notre Dame Professor Edwin Michael, PhD.  His work is making great strides reinventing how we attack complex problems.  "The challenge for building this type of model," Michael states, "lies in the formulation and analysis of the simultaneous effects of multiple positive and negative density dependent processes acting at different stages of the parasite life cycle."  His findings in Papa New Guinea are featured in an article in International Innovation, which can be downloaded here.
