Welcome to the Irish Society for Parasitology website



SOCIETY AGM 2020 ANNOUNCEMENT

 Dear ISP members,

We hope all is well with you at this time. Due to the ongoing pandemic situation unfortunately we were forced to cancel our annual meeting, which was planned for Galway in September 2020.

 However, we are pleased to announce that we have come up with an exciting alternative. We plan to prepare a 2020 ISP book of abstracts for distribution to all members and publication on the ISP website.

 Therefore, we would like to invite all members to contribute to this by submitting a one-page description of their research project containing a 300 word (maximum) Abstract together with one figure and one figure legend.

 Exclusively for our PhD student members, we are delighted to announce the inaugural ‘Prof. William C. Campbell Award for PhD Candidates’ for the best submission, with sponsorship from Cambridge University Press (publishers of Parasitology).

 The award includes a copy of Prof. Campbell’s fascinating biography ‘Catching the Worm’ reflecting on his early research days and events leading up to and after his Nobel Prize Award. The best submission will also receive a £/€250 prize. The winning Abstract figure will appear on the front cover of the ISP book of abstracts.

 All submissions are due by 5pm on September 30th, 2020, and they can be submitted by email to irishsoc.parasitology@gmail.com. Importantly, those entering the competition must label their file with ‘competition’ somewhere in the title.

 With that, we encourage you to get creative and we look forward to seeing your entries.

 Best wishes,

 ISP Committee

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.
