As part of the Biggar Science Festival, Prof Lee Innes will discuss the fascinating relationship we have with the many parasites that live inside us and why some of them can be deadly and some may actually be beneficial to us.

Parasites are remarkable mini-beasts that have adapted to live inside us and other animals. Our changing climate and an increase in travel to remote areas of the world has increased our encounters with a wide range of different parasites.
