An exploration of the use of hydrogels to provide a matrix to support the growth of macrophages for Leishmania culture
Alex Lister is an Undergraduate Biochemistry Student at Keele University, UK, supervised by Dr. Helen Price. Funded through the Wellcome Trust, his research is focused on the parasite Leishmania, and has conducted research into the use of hydrogels as a new model for parasitic infection, and hopes to conduct research into drug screening and culturing of macrophages and Leishmania within a 3D matrix.
