The Australian Research Council (ARC) and the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Research Network for Parasitology will focus and coordinate the fundamental, strategic and applied parasitology research in Australia. It will raise the standing of Australia in the field, assist in the community understanding of parasitology, and maintain and improve the capacity of Australia to keep its stock, crops, wildlife and people free from disease. On an international scale, the ARC/NHMRC Network will work with other countries to develop new technologies for the detection and control of parasites.
