Prospecting myxozoans of Malacosporea class in Brazil


Dr. Beth Okamura is a researcher at the Department of Life Sciences of the Natural History Museum in London. Her research focus has been ecology and life history of bryozoans and ecology and evolution of parasites of the phylum Myxozoa, mainly those of Malacosporea class. These organisms use bryozoans as invertebrate hosts and fish as vertebrate hosts. During the visit, Dr. Okamura will participate in collection and analysis bryozoans and freshwater fish, aiming to study Myxozoa (Malacosporea). She also will present lectures to researchers, students of UNIFESP and also will participate of meetings with researchers from other institutions of the State of São Paulo and discussions on future projects that will be developed in partnership.
