Welcome to FR3 Parasite Resources

Organization of Parasite Resources

The Parasite Resources Division of the FR3 has been in existence for over 30 years.  The primary goal of our Division is to serve the filariasis research community by:

  1. Providing filarial researchers with the needed stages of the parasite in order to conduct their research.
  2. Performing the above service in a timely manner. 
  3. Coordinating the overall activities of the FR3.

 We are open to suggestions from the community as to other services that could be offered by our Division or the Center as a whole.  Please submit suggestions to Andy Moorhead at

 We are located in the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA. For questions regarding ordering or other issues, call or email to

Phone: (706) 542-8449

Orders for FR3 materials are now handled by BEI Resources.  Please visit their website to place your order.
