Parasitology

Section edited by Dr. Johannes Charlier

The parasitology section considers research focusing on the clinical, macro-pathological, cell and molecular biological aspects of parasitological infections. This includes studies on livestock, companion animals, equids, wild animals, fish, laboratory animals and animal models of human infections. Studies on related zoonotic and emerging infections are also considered.
