Available to level 4 honours and graduate students.
A tutorial/seminarbased subject dealing with concepts and specific topics in parasitology.
Interactions between parasites and their hosts from the molecular, biochemical and
physiological to the population level are examined with reference to specific organisms.
- discuss the evolution and basic theories of parasitism as a way of life;
- discuss the means by which parasitic infections lead to parasitic disease and the
pathogenic mechanisms involved;
- understand the epidemiology of parasitic diseases and the principles involved in development
and application of mathematical/computer models of parasitic diseases;
- understand the mechanisms by which the hosts attempt to control the growth, development
and multiplication of parasites and how parasites evade these processes.
