Dr John McGarry MSc PhD

Senior Lecturer Veterinary Pathology and Public Health


    Personal Statement

    I completed my PhD on fly population dynamics in 1992 at the Liverpool school of Tropical Medicine where I worked for 28 years, completing numerous projects in Africa, before moving to the school of Veterinary Science in 2008. Research interests are the biology and control of parasitic arthropods - principally flies, ticks and mites - as agents of skin infestations and vectors of disease and I am author of some 60 publications, I have more recent interests in parasitic lungworms of companion animals, zoonotic helminths of wildlife and in forensic entomology, a pathology-related veterinary specialism unique to the Liverpool School of Veterinary Science.
