ParaFrap, the French Alliance for Parasitology and Health Care, is a LabEx (Laboratory of Excellence) created by the French Ministry of Research in 2012 and regrouping currently 17 leading Parasitology groups in France
Plasmodium, Toxoplasma, Trypanosoma, Leishmania, Entamoeba, Theileria

  • New scientific opportunities are provided by the recently available genome information for most major parasites and their hosts
  • Combining the state-of-the-art of fundamental research and translational applications we expect to defeat major parasitic diseases such as malaria, toxoplasmosis, leishmaniasis, African trypanosomiasis, amoebiasis and theileriosis
  • herapeutic involvements (diagnostics, drugs and vaccines)
  • ParaFrap will contribute to the future through a national student training
    PhD program termed "ParaFrap Training"
