Parasites and vectors

Scientists in the Parasites and Vectors Division are studying parasites and the organisms that transmit them to humans and animals.

From large-scale biodiversity inventories involving wildlife to highly focussed studies on individual species, our research topics are equally diverse.

Founded in systematics and taxonomy and building on traditional collections research staff have expertise in a number of important parasites and vectors of biomedical, veterinary, zoonotic, forensic, economic, conservation and evolutionary importance.
