  The Indian Society for Parasitology
Over the years, the Society has carved a niche for itself by providing a common platform to research scientists, clinicians, field biologists, academicians and all others involved in parasitology or tropical medicine to share and exchange their knowledge and observations.
Annual conferences, sponsored by national and international agencies, are organized by the ISP with a view to take stock of the current developments in parasitology and evolve strategies for the control and containment of parasitic diseases.
Those involved in research or teaching of parasitology or tropical medicine are eligible for ISP membership.

And parasitology is a dynamic field because the relationships between parasites and their hosts are dynamic, constantly changing.
These exciting areas of parasitology are rooted in the study of the evolution of parasites and their interactions with the environment provided by their hosts.
The tools of molecular biology are also being assimilated into the field of ecological parasitology and the promise of new discoveries regarding parasite life cycles, detection and identification of parasites, patterns of parasite transmission, and colonization are extremely exciting.

Parasitology is a course intended for Biology or other majors who are interested in the health professions, graduate or veterinary school, or who want to study the major groups of animal parasites affecting humans, domestic animals, and wildlife.
A great deal of what we cover will draw upon your previous courses in Biology and Chemistry, for parasitology is the most integrative of disciplines, one in which the scientist must be acquainted with the host's biology as well as that of the parasite.
These journals include, but are not limited to, The Journal of Parasitology, Experimental Parasitology, Journal of the Helminthological Society of Washington and Comparative Parasitology, and Journal of Wildlife Disease.

 ARC/NHMRC Network for Parasitology
They concluded that –while our research is world class and in many areas such as malaria is leading the world –Australian parasitology research is relatively fragmented because of the distances separating the large number of institutions and laboratories carrying out parasitological research.
A truly national approach to parasitology, the meeting concluded, would make Australia truly an international competitor in research and the development of methods to eradicate animal and human diseases caused by parasites.
Also included are a number of very strong parasitology research groups in universities and institutions around the country including Murdoch, Melbourne, Monash, La Trobe, Sydney and Queensland Universities, the Australian National University, and the South Australian Museum, to name a few.

 General Parasitology
Parasitism is carried out by many organisms, the main groups including viruses, bacteria, protozoa (these usually being endoparasitic), and various metazoan groups (multicellular eukaryotic animals), these being mostly groups of helminths (often endoparasitic), and arthropods (usually ectoparasitic), as well as some higher organisms, such as ectoparasitic lampreys and hagfish.
Generally however, for partly historical reasons, the term parasitology generally only refers to the study of infection with eukaryotic protozoan, and invertebrate metazoan parasites, not bacteria, viruses or the higher chordate parasites, even though these are parasites in the true sense.
The two terms definitive and intermediate host are the most important in parasitology when referring to the type of host.
