Program Description:

The Institute of Parasitology offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes in a multi-disciplinary environment, as well as a Graduate Certificate in Biotechnology. The Institute is a post-graduate research centre in which the interaction of host and parasite is studied from the perspective of molecular biology, immunology, biochemistry, biochemical pharmacology, genetics, ecology, and epidemiology. Research is conducted onmajor parasitic diseases of human and livestock populations, and is aimed at identifying new or improved methods for diagnosis and control of parasitic infections. To this end, researchers study viral infections and cancer cells, as well as the more traditional protozoan and helminth parasites.
