35th Anniversary

Parasite Immunology was launched in 1979 at a time when interest in the immunology of parasitic infection was burgeoning. Appreciation was growing, especially in Developing World countries, of the medical and economic problems associated with parasitic disease, and it was becoming increasingly apparent that immunological solutions to parasite control would demand much in terms of intellectual endeavour. Parasite Immunology provided a much-needed home for papers that would otherwise have been scattered among many journals in parasitology, immunology and tropical medicine.

Since then, Parasite Immunology has established itself as a premier journal for the rapid publication of important advances in the field – the average time from submission to first decision is currently five weeks.

This special anniversary issue showcases papers from the earliest issues, illustrating the quality and depth of the research published, and highlighting how the field has since advanced.
