Tim is currently researching parasite-host-microbiota interactions in the lab of Dr Cinzia Cantacessi in the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cambridge. As part of the BBSRC DTP Programme Tim completed rotation projects in Veterinary Medicine and in the Department of Genetics with Professor Anne Ferguson-Smith. Tim recently evaluated the analytical performance of antivenomics during his internship at Instituto Clodomiro Picado in Costa Rica. If you are a Cambridge DTP student you can read about his internship experience in the PIPS Moodle course.
