Parasitism is the most common biological association on the planet; virtually all organisms are parasitized by numerous parasites and many, such as the protists that cause malaria, are responsible for serious medical and/or veterinary diseases. This course will provide an in depth introduction to parasites and parasitism by exploring common protists, helminths and arthropods that infect animals and humans globally. The nature of parasitism will be explored by examining the development and transmission of many common parasitic agents, including their pathogenesis, zoonotic potential, diagnosis and treatment options.
