Andrew Kotze is an Adjunct Professor in the School of Veterinary Science at The University of Queensland, and co-Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal for Parasitology: Drugs and Drug Resistance. He is also on the editorial boards of several other parasitology journals. He has led research projects focusing on the control of nematode parasites of sheep, cattle, humans and companion animals. He has also led research projects on the control of the sheep blowfly. Research areas include drug resistance mechanisms, assays for detecting anthelmintic resistance, identifying new drug targets for the control of worms and blowflies, and exploring biochemical and molecular aspects of host-parasite interactions.
