Welcome to the homepage for Peter Nejsum!
I am Associate Professor at Department of Veterinary Disease Biology, the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
My field of interest is the effect of the genetics on host-parasite interaction with focus on the roundworm (Ascaris) and whipworm (Trichuris) in the pig (for further information - see Research areas)
.... Congratulation to Ayako Yoshida with the poster award!
....See me talking about worms on Danish television 'Aftenshowet' (starting at 42 min.)
.... Congratulation to Per Skallerup with the Young Scientist Award!
....We have now identified a QTL associated with suseptibility to Ascaris infection level in pigs - read here
....Review on the zoonotic potential of Ascaris and Trichuris here
....See me on TV here
....The Ascaris suum (roundworm) genome has been published - link here
....Why is it so hard to get rid of Trichuris infections? Our PhD student, Tina Alstrup is working on that.
