N8 Parasitology group presentation to the cross-parliamentary group on malaria
(25 April 2012)
WRI Acting Deputy Director Dr Mark Booth led a delegation from the N8 Parasitology Group to Parliament on April 24th to make a presentation to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases
An invitation by The All Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases (APPMG) to Dr Mark Booth was fulfilled in April with a visit to the House of Commons. Mark led a presentation to the APPMG on the work of the N8 Parasitology Group and was accompanied by colleagues from York and Liverpool Universities. Parasitology is one of the official themes of the N8 Research Partnership and this visit was an opportunity to highlight the strength and future potential of parasitological research collaboration across the N8 consortium. Emphasis was placed on the need to maintain funding and recognition of the full range of science disciplines within Parasitology.
