Parasitology is a science at the heart of clinical medicine, epidemiology, immunology, molecular biology and biochemistry.


It deals with some of the most important infectious diseases of mankind.


Parasitology has the potential to help us understand questions regarding the complexity of life and the subtle interactions between different species.
