Price Institute of Parasite Research (PIPeR) - The Price Institute for Parasite Research (PIPeR) is largely focused on the study of ectoparasitic insects (but we also work on vertebrate endoparasites, including avian malaria). The centerpiece of PIPeR is a collection of 1200+ species of slide-mounted lice, representing about two thirds of the 301 recognized genera, making it the fourth most diverse collection in North America (top 10 worldwide).

Sam Houston State University Parasite Museum (SHSUP) - Part of the SHSU Natural History Museum, this collection contains migratory waterfowl parasites, endangered/threatened bird parasites, and a recent donation of 300,000 parasitic wasps.

If you know of other parasite collections and want them added here, please let us know!
