Advances in Parasitology presents the latest developments in the field of parasitology. It covers topics such as Chagas Disease Diagnostic Applications, The Role of Spatial Statistics in the Control and Elimination of Neglected Tropical Diseases in Sub-Saharan Africa, and Host-Parasite Relationships and Life Histories of Trypanosomes in Australia. Specific chapters delve into targeting parasites to suppress malaria transmission and a focus on neglected tropical diseases, such as Trypanosomiasis, Schistosomiasis and Lymphatic Filariasis. This series includes medical studies of parasites of major influence, such as Plasmodium falciparum and trypanosomes, as well as reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy and life history.

About David Rollinson

Professor David Rollinson is a Merit Research Scientist at the Natural History Museum in London, where he leads a research team in the Wolfson Wellcome Biomedical Laboratories and directs the WHO Collaborating Centre for schistosomiasis. He has had a long fascination with parasites and the diseases that they cause, this has involved him in many overseas projects especially in Africa. He is on the WHO Expert Advisory Panel of parasitic diseases, the editor of Advances in Parasitology and a former President of the World Federation of Parasitologists. His research group uses a multidisciplinary approach, which combines detailed molecular studies in the laboratory with ongoing collaborative studies in endemic areas of disease, to explore the intriguing world of parasites in order to help control and eliminate parasitic diseases. Prof. Russell Stothard is Chair in Medical Parasitology at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK
