Arif Ciloglu – new postdoc at MEMEG

I graduated as a Veterinarian from Erciyes University, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Kayseri, Turkey. I did my PhD in Veterinary Parasitology Science at Graduate School of Health Sciences, Erciyes University, from 2011 to 2016. I am currently working as an Assistant Professor in Department of Parasitology at Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Erciyes University. Also, I am a researcher in Protozoan Infections Group of Erciyes University Vectors and Vector-Borne Diseases Implementation and Research Centre.

In my postdoc project with Staffan Bensch as host, I plan to focus on a group of closely related lineages of Haemoproteus parasites (H. belopolskyi and H. nucleocondensus) that are primarily infecting warblers in the family of Acrocephalidae and that have their transmission restricted to tropical Africa. This study is important as it will provide unique knowledge of ecological and genetic adaptations associated to changes in transmission areas, key variables for predicting new Emerging Infectious Diseases.
