Research Interests

Janna Schurer works with remote and Aboriginal northern communities to determine prevalence of parasites in pets, wildlife, and exposure risk to humans. She specifically focuses on Echinococcus granulosus, which is a zoonotic tapeworm of human health concern, as well as Baylisascaris, Diphyllobothrium, Toxocara, and Giardia. Other interests include providing veterinary services to remote communities, as well as introducing dog population control measures that are sustainable and humane. Once finished her graduate work, she hopes to return to the jungles of Asia to continue her work with elephants and indigenous peoples.
