ABOUT THE IRISH SOCIETY FOR PARASITOLOGY

The society was founded in 1993 with the aims of advancing the study of parasitology, facilitating communication with those interested in parasitology, promoting the dissemination of information and development of resources for teaching and research in parasitology.

The key activity of the ISP is the annual scientific meeting and AGM, which is an opportunity to share research results and network with members of the Irish parasitology community. Postgraduate research students are especially encouraged to present their work and an award is given annually for the top student presentation.
