About

The history of the Department of Parasitology dates back to 1995 when a former collegium of the dean Pavel Blažka decided to establish an independent Department of Parasitology, the only one at that time set aside from the Czech Academy of Sciences in České Budějovice. Jiří Lom, an eminent personality in Czechoslovak parasitology, significantly contributed to the origin of the Department. The Department was established by Libor Grubhoffer, who also became its first head. Later, he passed this function onto Václav Hypša, the current head of the Department.

The Department of Parasitology is responsible for the Master and Doctoral programmes in Parasitology.
It also coordinates the
 theses of the Bachelor degree students focused on parasitology.

The research covers structural, taxonomical, ecological, biochemical, immunological, phylogenetic, evolutionary, population-genetic, phylogeographic, and genomic aspects of parasite biology. It is focused on several dominant groups of parasites, and also on their symbiotic microorganisms.
