The Parasitology Section within the School of Veterinary and Life Sciences was established in 1976 and has since become one of the largest centres for parasitology in Australia. The section is responsible for providing undergraduate courses in parasitology for veterinary, biomedical and animal science students, and contributes to a number of other courses offered by the Faculty. We have a range of research interests, including wildlife parasitology and disease ecology, and the study of neglected diseases such as Trypanosoma cruzi. We are a multidisciplinary research group, with expertise in parasitology, ecology, genomics, and molecular biology. We also offer a range of diagnostic and screening services to researchers, the medical and veterinary community, and pharmaceutical companies.
We offer a range of diagnostic and screening services to both commercial and research clients.
Our research encompasses a variety of aspects of parasitology; from the genomic, to the ecological.
