Wormwize® is a product of Kreavet, a Belgian research and consultancy agency. Wormwize® is built by a small team of researchers that aims to empower veterinarians to bring evidence-based, state-of-the-art advice on parasitic worm control to cattle operations. Through continued close interactions with research and laboratory partners, we have the ambition to continuously adopt the latest scientific insights, improve the health of farm animals and promote sustainable worm control.
Dr. Tong Wang has studied parasite epidemiology for many years. He completed his PhD in veterinary parasitology at University of Bristol in 2015 and worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and University of Calgary for 5 years. His work in the UK and Canada has involved significant interactions with livestock farmers through planning and conducting field research. Tong has managed multiple research projects and worked with mathematical parasite transmission models. Tong is R&D manager at Kreavet and the product manager of Wormwize®.
Dr. Johannes Charlier conducted research on the diagnosis, epidemiology and control of parasitic worm infections in ruminants at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Ghent University for 13 years. He founded Kreavet in 2017 with the ambition to speed-up translation of research results into practice. He contributed to several parasite monitoring programmes in dairy cattle in Belgium and the world. With Wormwize®, he wants to place this know-how and experience in the hands of veterinary practitioners and advisors to promote efficient and sustainable parasite control.
Prof. Edwin Claerebout graduated as a veterinarian in 1990 and obtained his PhD in veterinary sciences in 1998 at Ghent University, Belgium. He is an EBVS ® European Veterinary Specialist in Parasitology (dipEVPC) and professor in parasitology at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Ghent University. His research interests are parasitic diseases in livestock, particularly sustainable control of gastrointestinal parasites and psoroptic mange in cattle. This includes vaccine development, drug resistance and decision support tools to facilitate uptake of sustainable parasite control by farmers and veterinarians. Prof Claerebout is scientific adviser of Wormwize®.
