Human resources in the Department of Parasitology consist of two staff with master degree, 6 Ph.Ds, one professor, along with nine technicians and the support staff. From its establishment, the Department of Parasitology has been contributing to education, research and community service. Educational system for undergraduate program is based on Problem-Based Learning system, while for the advance learners we contribute to master programs in Tropical Medicine, Basic Medical Science and Biomolecular (majoring in Parasitology), Public Health, Specialist physician education program and the doctoral program.

Research work is conducted both independently and in cooperation with local institutions and international partners. Current advance research works are: development of recombinant proteins for serologic malaria transmission measurement, identification of transovarial dengue transmission using monoclonal antibody, and detection of mosquito resistance to insecticides using biological, biochemical and molecular assays. Community service has always been carried out in accordance with community needs to control the transmission of parasitic diseases, such as improving community role in dengue surveillance in Minomartani Village, malaria elimination program coordinator in Kulon Progo, and screening of intestinal parasite infestation in Central Maluku.
