Emma tells us about females in the Cryptosporidium life cycle, and the lack of characterised markers.

Emma gave a great seminar, sharing her work using CRISPR and microscopy to study female parasite stages and oocyst wall biology. She passed with minor corrections- great job!

We are proud of you!
Continuing the tradition of decorated hats!
