The city of Dundee is situated on the impressive Tay estuary, and provides access to the highlands of Scotland. Situated one hour from Edinburgh and close to St Andrews, Dundee offers a great venue for science and recreation.  The University is less than 50 years old, but has garnered a globally recognised reputation in the Life Sciences and the Arts. A considerable presence in Molecular Parasitology and Drug Discovery distinguish Dundee as a major centre of excellence for parasitology research, and we are proud to host the BSP in 2017.

The venue is a 4 star hotel on Dundee's waterfront and we have secured excellent rates for your stay.  The inclusive price is for 3 nights' accommodation, meeting registration, breakfast, lunch and the Gala event.
