Javier Sotillo-Gallego obtained his PhD in 2011 at University of Valencia (Spain) with high honours under the supervision of Dr. Rafael Toledo and J. Guillermo Esteban.His interests during my PhD were the host-parasite interactions at a proteomics and immunological level in the Echinostoma-rodent. In 2012 he was appointed as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at James Cook University at the laboratory of Alex Loukas.
His research focus is the analysis of the proteomes and secretomes of parasites and how they orchestrate a parasitic existence. I am also interested in the host-parasite relationships, with a particular emphasis on soil-transmitted helminths (e.g. hookworms, whipworms, roundworms) and water-borne trematodes such as Schistosoma spp.
