Undergraduate Studies


Teaching Parasitology involves, among other aspects, morphological identification of parasites for diagnosis. The Department of Parasitology has a large collection of slides with parasite images. This collection has being entirely digitized. Materials not subject to copyright (pictures, drafts), will be published in the internet with free access. This image library will serve professors, students, technicians and other professionals interested in Parasitology, within and outside USP. In a second stage, the Department will generate new images, utilizing magnifiers and microscopes for obtaining images from pieces and slides of parasites, respectively.  This project is supported by USP Culture and Extension Division, through the program “Aprender com Cultura e Extensão” (Learning with Culture and Extension).
