In the unit for parasitology the focus is to find sustainable control methods for important parasites of veterinary interest. Linked to this are detailed studies of the parasites' population genetics and transmission biology. The long-term objective is to meet the requirements for sustainable parasite management where large-scale routine treatment with antiparasitic drugs is threatened due to emerging resistance in a changing world.

Our research is mainly on the development of new diagnostic tools, based on molecular methods as well as electronic sensors. These tools are then used to increase the understanding of the epidemiology of important parasitic infections, including some that are zoonotic. Historically, our research activities have included various research lines within externally funded projects both in Sweden and in developing countries.
