Who we are & what we do
The role of The British Society for Parasitology is to draw attention to the unique importance of parasitology as a distinct discipline within biology.
The BSP was formed in 1962 from the Parasitological Section of the Institute of Biology. Today the Society is the central networking and meeting point for many professional, student and amateur parasitologists throughout the UK and across the world. Members are found in 182 institutes/organisations worldwide!
Our mission is to...
Advance the study of parasitology
Facilitate communication within the broad community of parasitologists
Promote wider dissemination of advances in the field of parasitology
