This Month in Blastocystis Research (OCT 2015)

I'm actually going to skip the small review I do each month for a variety of reasons. Instead, I'm just going to upload a presentation I gave in Tilburg, The Netherlands, a bit more than a week ago, before attending the UEG Week in Barcelona.

I uploaded it to Google Drive, hoping that it will be easy to download for everyone interested. I have not included any notes, hoping that the slides will be pretty much self-explanatory.

I think there is even a bit of Danish in there, - hope you don't mind! Also, the preview option does not work very well, so make sure you download it.

If the presentation left you wondering a bit and wish for more, why not look up my publications listed in PubMed? They are available here.  Some of them can be downloaded for free.

Thank you for your attention.

A Shift of Paradigm in Blastocystis Research? Free paper in Trends in Parasitology!

As mentioned earlier, Dr Pauline Scanlan and I put together an opinion for Trends in Parasitology. This paper may possibly be one in a string of research and review papers heralding a shift of paradigm in Blastocystis research. I hope that it will stimulate the debate about the clinical significance of Blastocystis, and it can be downloaded for free all of this month; please go here for a free copy (go and look in the right side bar in the 'Featured Articles' section; there you will also find a free copy of the review on foodborne parasites mentioned in my previous blog post!).
