Nov 2022:
Noel Gabiliga THIOMBIANO (PhD student, Joseph KI-ZERBO University, BURKINA FASO) will visit our lab in January 2023 to study parasites from bats from Burkina Faso. His research stay is supported by a Flexible Travel Fund from the Berlin Center for Global Engagement (BCGE) at the Berlin University Alliance (BUA).
