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.

Highlight II of the Month - May

Publication by Dr. Markus Ganter featured on the cover of Nature Microbiology:


In the pathogenic blood stage of infection, Plasmodium falciparum cell-cycle progression is directed by the parasite-specific kinase CRK4. Without active CRK4, DNA replication is inhibited and the nuclei are deformed by spindle-like structures.
