Robin Gasser is an eminent veterinary scientist. His fundamental research has generated deep knowledge and understanding about the biology of parasites, their interactions with their hosts and the diseases they cause by applying and integrating a range of advanced technologies to explore their genomes and function. His achievements include the identification of a range of novel targets for antiparasitic drug development. He has used this extensive fundamental research to underpin the development of innovative methods for the diagnosis, treatment and control of socioeconomically important parasitic diseases of animals and humans for subsequent translation and commercialisation.
