William Trager. Living together: the biology of animal parasitism
For more than 50 years, Professor William Trager has bent his efforts toward understanding parasites: how they get from one host to another, how they recognize and enter appropriate hosts and find their way to particular organs and cells, how they are sheltered or rejected. He has studied their nutritional requirements and their genetics. A decade ago, he achieved the successful test tube cultivation of a malaria parasite.
In a new book, Living Together: The Biology of Animal Parasitism, he tells the story of what he and others have learned about the creatures who live on other creatures, and of the efforts to control parasitic diseases, “not only to present what is known,” he writes, “but also to reveal the great gaps in our knowledge and the fascinating work yet to be done.”
