  • The intestinal parasite Cryptosporidium (brown) grows on
    Georgia Wilke
    The intestinal parasite Cryptosporidium (brown) grows on "mini-guts" (purple) in a dish. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have figured out how to grow the parasite in the lab, an achievement that will speed efforts to treat or prevent diarrhea caused by the parasite.
  • David Sibley, PhD, discusses data with MD/PhD student Georgia Wilke, PhD. Sibley, Wilke and colleagues developed a technique to grow the intestinal parasite Cryptosporidium in the lab. Their technique could aid efforts to understand and treat diarrhea caused by Cryptosporidium.
