About

The postgraduate programme in Applied Parasitology from University Sains Malaysia encompasses various aspects of both medical and veterinary parasitology.

Overview

The postgraduate programme in Applied Parasitology is offered from University Sains Malaysia.

What you'll study

Studies on various aspects of malaria, especially the epidemiology and vector bionomics can possibly be carried out in the more malaria- prone areas of Perak, especially along the Malaysia-Thailand border. As regards to veterinary parasitology, the emphasis will mainly be on the trichostrongylid nematode of ruminant parasites. 

Studies on the bionomics of these nematodes, together with drug efficacy studies would be potential areas to be investigated both in the indigenous goat and sheep populations of northern Peninsular Malaysia. Studies using medicated urea molass blocks (MUMB) in the control of the trichostrongylid nematodes would definitely prove to be an interesting area of research for postgraduate students.
