Towards ecologically-realistic genetic mosquito population control strategies for disease elimination
03 Apr 2017 - 04 Apr 2017
Newport Pagnell, United Kingdom
Traditional chemical approaches to mosquito control are fast becoming less effective and acceptable. Worryingly, the implementation of effective novel genetic mosquito control strategies requires knowledge in mosquito behaviour, ecology and genetics that is currently very fragmentary. This extraordinary meeting of leading researchers in these fields will delineate strategic integrative research avenues addressing critical bottlenecks in implementing future vector control programmes. This is a residential conference, which allows for increased discussion and networking.
