The Department of Veterinary Parasitology
aims to achieve excellence in both
research and teaching in the field
of Parasitology. Our goal is to discover
and implement novel strategies to
control parasitic diseases that affect
the health of millions of animals
worldwide. We employ cutting-edge
research in genomics, cell biology,
immunology, epidemiology, entomology
and biochemistry to discover new ways
to combat parasitic disease. Through
our teaching and training programs,
we aim to educate and mentor the next
generation of Parasitologists.
Department of Veterinary Parasitology
is staffed by an outstanding team
of scientists at faculty, postgraduates
striving to contribute in veterinary
health by teaching and research.
Department has a distinguished history
in parasitic disease research, particularly
on tick-transmitted diseases. It has
been a national leader in both research
and training of veterinary parasitologists
from the Pakistan as well as overseas.
The Department contributes in awarding
DVM, M Sc, M Phil and PhD degrees.
Besides it also offers short trainings
in diagnostics of parasitic diseases.
The Department of Parasitology has
been renovated by developing a state-of-art
Molecular Parasitology Laboratory
equipped with most-modern equipment
required for cutting edge research.
The department further plans to create
an infra-structure which includes
the creation of a computer lab for
epidemiologic research, bioinformatics
and genomics laboratories.
