Dear Young Parasitologists!

We are pleased to announce that the next Deutsche Gesellschaft für Parasitologie Young Parasitologists course will take place in Gießen!

A tentative date is 6-10.09.2025, but this is subject to change. We will release details about registration, course content and travel/accomodation closer to the date.

Feel free to contact me If you have any questions!

About the DGP YP Course

Started in 2005, the course is intended to bring together young Parasitologists from all disciplines and generate a forum for exchange of ideas and concepts. 

We invite leading experts who will discuss their research topics with you in their comprehensive seminars. Take advantage of this opportunity and discuss your thoughts, projects and questions with them. All of them will be delighted to assist you in every possible manner.

What is not included in the program may well be an important part of the course, i.e. the dinner and pub visits at night. They’ll be our reward for an intense programme. 

Criteria for selection

Although aimed primarily at PhD students, we occasionally accept Master students if their topic is parasitology-related. Student Membership of the DGP (€25/year) is required (https://dgparasitologie.de/dgp-mitglied-werden). 

Course fees

The course fee is €75, which includes accommodation and most meals. Travel arrangements should be made individually.
