Featured Science: Toxoplasma Gondii|
Toxoplasmosis is one of the most common parasitic infections throughout
the world. According to one estimate from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, up to one-quarter of Americans may be
infected, and up to one-third of the world's population. At NIMBioS,
Dr. Xiaopeng Zhao is co-organizer of a May 13-15 workshop in which a
multi-disciplinary group of scientists will study Toxoplasma gondii
, the parasite that causes infection. NIMBioS has produced a video about the disease and the purpose of the workshop. Click here
