Network manager

We have been awarded a three year project to build a network of scientists around three neglected vector groups: sandflies; blackflies and biting midges. All these flies share the trait of being extremely small and challenging to study so our idea is to bring together scientists working on them to share techniques that can be implemented across all three groups. In doing so we will assist in controlling viruses, bacteria and worms spread by these insects between humans, livestock and wildlife.
