The Role of University Research Departments in the Development of Antiparasitic Chemotherapy

  • W. Peters
Part of the Chemotherapy book series (CT, volume 6)


An extensive programme of chemical synthesis designed to seek new antiparasitic drugs is a costly undertaking that can seldom be accepted within a university department. If such research is performed it is usually either because the work itself is of genuine academic interest, or because the acceptance of a contract from an outside organisation may, incidentally, provide funds that can then be used for other items of research of primary interest to that particular department.
