Celebrating 50 years

Celebrate with the BSP - 50 years
The British Society for Parasitology was formed in 1962 from the Parasitological Section of the Institute of Biology. To celebrate this our 50th year of operation we have commenced a number of improvements to the operation of the society.
Firstly, we have created two new roles on council for young Parasitologists ('student representatives'). It was felt that the Society needed to continue to support and develop Parasitology in the UK and the best people to help are those entering the profession today.
Many challenges face us, not least those posed by the rapid development of technology, and in response to our survey a number of changes have been planned by the Society to its technology platforms. We now appear on Facebook, Twitter and Linked In. We have redesigned our website and are attempting to create a more vibrant environment for parasitologists to work in. Let us know what you think and how we can improve.
