He is cross-appointed in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the Cumming School of Medicine, and holds a visiting professorship at the University of Glasgow. His research interests are in the field of drug resistance in parasites. His research group uses integrated genomic and genetic approaches to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of drug resistance in parasites and population genetic approaches to investigate its emergence and spread. Dr. Gilleard also has an interest in the development of novel diagnostic approaches for parasitic infections and anti-parasitic drug resistance, particularly for cattle parasites.
