Research at the Institute of Parasitology

focuses on the interaction between host and parasitic disease organisms with a view to controlling infection by these organisms. Many different perspectives brought by the staff provide a unique opportunity to examine aspects of infection ranging from the cellular mechanisms which govern this process, the immune response of the host, immunosuppression mechanisms used by parasites to assist infection and the epidemiology of parasitic diseases.

There are currently 11 research labs at the Institute of Parasitology.
