Nearly 5 years ago, the Irish-born American parasitologist William Campbell was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, alongside the Japanese microbiologist Ōmura Satoshi and the Chinese scientist Tu Youyou. The award was granted in recognition of their efforts in the discovery of antiparasitic compounds (avermectin, ivermectin, and artemisinin), which saved the lives of millions of people and various animal species worldwide. The contributions of parasitologists to the global society are expected to continue, particularly with the current technological advances, as well as the many emerging approaches that could potentially lead to innovations in parasitology research, which will ultimately benefit public health and food security. These two areas of research could not be more exciting for parasitologists, given the challenges we face to protect the public from the constant threat of parasitic diseases and to secure enough food for the growing human population. For these reasons, we would like to invite colleagues and peers to submit their seminal work (original research and reviews) for consideration for publication in Parasitologia. The theme of the first Special Issue focuses on the role of parasitology research in advancing public health and food security. We welcome submission of articles from authors from all geographic regions of the world.
