Learn what a parasite is and take a close look at these amazing critters – some 100-times smaller than the eye can see and others the length of a swimming pool.

Learn how ANU scientists are studying parasites to understand their biology and find new ways to treat and prevent the diseases they cause. Through interactive games, discover what parasites call home and where you might meet one.

Also try your hand diagnosing parasite-infected patients and even uncover some hidden benefits of parasites.
