Diagnostics and interventions

The Vector Department has a strong focus on translational research and has developed a number of products and tools in use to aid the control of vector borne diseases. These include:

Several of our discovery research projects have led to new tools for use by the research community. For example, our work on insecticide resistance has led to the development of multiple molecular diagnostics for mutations associated with insecticide resistance. We have also developed a number of transgenic mosquito lines which can be used to drive expression of genes in specific tissues. Other projects in progress include:
