Over the next two years, John Hawdon, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Tropical Medicine at GW's School of Medicine and Health Sciences, will work to develop techniques to manipulate hookworm DNA through a $407,233 grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
"Genetically manipulating the parasite will allow us to do things like determine gene function and find what genes are important for this parasite to survive to ultimately use them as drug targets," said Hawdon.
This grant titled, "Developing Tools for Genetic Manipulation of Hookworms" will also allow Hawdon to learn more about how hookworm survives inside its host.

John Hawdon, Ph.D., associate professor of microbiology, immunology, and tropical medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, advocates a more sustainable solution for controlling STH infections.
In a review published in the Journal of Parasitology, Hawdon proposes a new emphasis on sustainable, long-term investments in sanitation-based approaches. He promotes the use of improved latrines (the "box") to provide bottom-up, culturally appropriate, and economically desirable solutions to control STH in endemic areas.
"With more than 39 million disability-adjusted life years lost to STH, control of STH infections is of the upmost importance," said Hawdon.
