Mrs Helen Williams

Head of LITE (Liverpool Insect Testing Establishment)

Background

Funded by IVCC, LSTM has established a new unit dedicated to the testing of insecticide based products, set up in 2011 by Professor Hilary Ranson for commercial partners.

The facility maintains a range of insecticide susceptible and resistant colonies of mosquitoes, many unique to LSTM, and offers a number of alternative testing methodologies for insecticide efficacy purposes.
