Director's Statement

It is an obligation for research scientists to effectively communicate about our work in an understandable language. I created this video series to post on Social Media during the global lock down due to the COVID 19 pandemic. The aim was to put together a comprehensive series covering all relevant aspects of equine parasites. The videos were posted one at the time with weekly intervals during the spring of 2020. They have been looped together in a single entry for Film Festival submission.

Director's Bio
Equine veterinarian with three years of experience from clinical practice in Denmark. Trained in equine parasitology in a clinical department at the veterinary school in Copenhagen, with a significant stint at Dr. Ray Kaplan’s parasitology laboratory at the University of Georgia, Athens. Faculty member at the University of Copenhagen for four years prior to joining the Gluck Equine Research Center in 2011. Co-editor in Chief for Veterinary Parasitology.

Diagnosis and control of gastrointestinal helminths of horses and anthelmintic resistance. Studies aim at 1) understanding and developing new diagnostic measures of important parasites and their level of resistance to anthelmintic drugs, 2) developing and evaluating sustainable anthelmintic treatment regimens using objective measures, and 3) applying molecular approaches for understanding mechanisms for development of anthelmintic resistance.
