Prof. (Dr.) Anup Kumar Tewari


Brief Introduction

Area of specialization

Exploration and characterization of novel biomolecules for the specific and sensitive detection and immunoprophylaxis of important protozoan parasites of veterinary interest, such as Trypanosoma evansi, Babesia bigemina, Theileria annulata, and Toxoplasma gondii, has been in my research priority. I also explored the epidemiological risk factors affecting the prevalence of some important parasites of livestock, such as Trypanosoma evansi, Toxoplasma gondii, Eimeria species infecting chicken, Cryptosporidium species, Echinococcus ortleppi, Fasciola gigantica etc.
