"And though worms destroy this body" ... but do they?

Professor Mark Viney
Head of Evolution, Ecology and Behaviour

It's normal to be infected by worms and all animals and plants have evolved with them, but how these worms make their living is still mysterious - and trying to understand this has driven Professor Mark Viney's career.

Professor Viney joined the Institute of Integrative Biology in 2018, so returning - via Edinburgh and Bristol - to Liverpool 30 years after his PhD in Liverpool's School of Tropical medicine, where his own association with parasitic nematodes was born.
