French Parasitology Alliance For Health Care

The Institutional Board will be constituted of Top Level Executives mandated to speak on behalf of their participating institution (CNRS, INSERM, IRD, Universities). It is the body of connection between the ParaFrap community with their institutional decision-makers, it will oversee the consortium activities submitted to them annually. The IB will discuss the needs and implementation in terms of infrastructure and resources. It is anticipated that these will impact on choices of the individual institutions for future, co-ordinated strategic investments and possibly fund raising.

This process secures agreement of each institution to the ParaFrap portfolio and budget, and guarantees transparency to the decision and planning procedures at the national level. This is an essential aspect of French integration of research in the field of parasitology. The Institutional Board provides a body for identifying any critical issues (personnel, training programmes/facilities, infrastructures, resources) necessitating specific action to be taken at the institutional level to promote and facilitate parasitology-related activities and favour integration within the overall research agenda. 

All major institutions participating in ParaFrap have a longstanding history in supporting infectious disease research and are very keen to support this LabEx consortium.

  • CNRS has a long-standing history in creating and supporting parasitology laboratories. At present, it supports 15 out of 19 research laboratories all over France that participate in this consortium.
  • IRD devotes its research to diseases that are a major human and veterinary health problem and leads research projects with permanent scientists located in Southern countries.
  • French Universities also play a key role in the internationally distinguished parasitology research. This includes translational research and training of master students (Montpellier and Paris).
