Marguerite Frongillo Profile Pic


  • BIOL 531 (Parasitology) (cross-listed ENHS 661, EPID 661)


My interest is in human and veterinary parasitology, and I have taught human parasitology since 2007. Before coming to UofSC, I had 28 years of experience teaching parasitology to veterinary students and doing research on parasitic infections in animals at the Cornell Veterinary College. I have expertise in practical diagnostic techniques for detecting parasitic infections in domestic and wild animals. I trained in human parasitology at the Uniform Services University of the Health Sciences. My postdoctoral work was on the reproductive endocrinology of the yellow fever mosquito Aedes aegypti. I earned my doctorate in Entomology from the University of Kansas with a dissertation on the behavior and reproductive endocrinology of the paper wasp Polistes metricus.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
