About Parasitology Division

The Division of Parasitology is intertwined with the history of the Indian Veterinary Research Institute when one realizes that one of the first problems handled by the Institute was determining the etiology of 'surra', a haemotropic disease of horses caused by Trypanosoma evansi. During the early part of the century, the equine-stud problems on surra, filariasis and the once-mistaken role of insects in the transmission of rinderpest attracted the attention of researchers. In order to address the above issues, a Section of Protozoology comprising of Protozoology and Entomology was created in 1931 with the Director as Incharge and by 1939, this Section was renamed as Veterinary Zoology with a Parasitologist as Incharge. Subsequently, by the year 1954, the Section of Parasitology was elevated to the status of a full-fledged research Division.
