BSc(Guelph), PhD(Lond), DIC(Imperial College)
My main research area is the interaction between parasites/pathogens and insects. The current project is the examination of the effect of exposure of bacteria on antimicrobial production by insect larvae. Recently completed work involved the development of trypanosomes (the causal agent of sleeping sickness in humans and nagana in animals) within the tsetse fly vector.
Lori Peacock obtained a BSc in agriculture from the University of Guelph, Canada with a major in Environmental Biology and a minor in International Agriculture. She gained a PhD from Imperial College, University of London which was funded by a Commonwealth scholarship. After her PhD and career break due to family commitments, she was awarded a Daphne Jackson Memorial Fellowship, which allowed her to establish an independent research project at Long Ashton Research Station (LARS). With the closure of LARS in 2003, she joined the molecular parasitology group at Langford as a research associate, led by Wendy Gibson. Currently she is working as a research associate in the laboratory of Tristan Cogan.
