New year greetings to all the members of the IATP! 

On my behalf and behalf of the entire fraternity of the Indian Academy of Tropical Parasitology, I extend a hearty welcome to you all to the newly created website of the IATP ( There was a strong need to recreate the website,  which was dysfunctional for more than 3 to 4 years. I take this opportunity in expressing my sincere thanks to Dr.Namrata, Dr.Vanathy, Faculties at the  Department of Microbiology, MGMCRI, Pondicherry, and all others who have spent extra time and shown their creativity in creating this New Web site of the IATP.

I am confident this will provide all of us an exciting opportunity to share and exchange our ideas, and professional activities pertaining to the tropical parasitic disease on this platform. The said web site will be a platform to provide all the information on all our professional activities such as the organization of the Annual Conferences, Chapter activities, Symposia, CMEs, etc. and professional activities of all our colleagues including faculties, students both undergraduate including undergraduate and postgraduates, scientists,  and all others contributing to tropical parasitic diseases. On behalf of IATP and my own behalf I request all the members to provide full cooperation and support in various activities of the academy including  E media activities such as webinars, podcasts, etc.;   Organizing  Annual Congresses  CMES, Chapter activities, etc. regularly. 

We are living through a difficult time and are facing the gravest collective threat to our lives due to this COVID-19 pandemic. On behalf of IATP, I thank all health care workers for demonstrating, a great deal of resilience and discipline through these challenging times. Please stay safe, wear masks,  maintain physical distancing and contribute to protecting others in the  Pandemic Covid 19.

Suggestions to improve further the web content t of the IATP are most welcome. Please pass on the information to the Web Coordinator Dr. Namrata ( E-mail).

Wishing you all the best a happy and prosperous new Year 2021.
