The Institute of Parasitology is part of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The Institute performs research on human and animal parasites at the organismal, cellular and molecular levels. Its mission is to acquire, advance, and disseminate knowledge of the biology and host relationships of parasitic protist and related eucaryotic microorganisms, helminths, and athropods. The Institute pursues this goal through research, education and other activities at both the national and international levels. The results obtained have contributed to the prevention and control of human and animal parasitic diseases and have an impact on agriculture.
The Institute of Parasitology was established in Prague in 1962, but was relocated to České Budějovice in South Bohemia in 1985. It is the principal institution in the Czech Republic devoted exlcusively to parasitological research. The main research areas encompass protistology, helminthology, and medical entomology, including studies on the causative agents of the infections transmitted by arthropods.
