Dr Bruce Alexander presents ‘Ecology of Leishmania transmission’ on Tuesday 23 May from 12pm to 1pm.

Dr Alexander is from Edinburgh, Scotland and is a Research Associate at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in the UK.  He obtained his PhD in Medical Entomology at the University of Florida and for the past 25 years has worked on the phlebotamine sand fly vectors of Leishmania, principally in Columbia and Brazil.
