Portrait of Joseph Koussa, Ph.D.


Joe is an Associate Professor at Montgomery Community College in Maryland. He is interested in the parasitism of filarial nematodes and uses Brugia malayi as a model filarial parasite to investigate the host-parasite interface tackling glycomic, proteomic and immune-relevant interactions between the parasite and its human host.
