Overview


The British Society for Parasitology Spring 2018 Conference will be held at Aberystwyth University from Sunday 8th April to Wednesday 11th April.

Aberystwyth is situated on the beautiful West coast of Wales, and has a long history of parasitology research. Today we have a large and vibrant parasitology research group at the Institute of Biological, Environmental & Rural Sciences (IBERS). The BSP Spring meeting was last held at Aberystwyth in 1986, so we are looking forward to making 2018 a memorable meeting for you all.

This year we have several diverse and interesting sessions and themes, symposia and workshops including:

• Biannual Trypanosomiasis & Leishmaniasis symposium
