Event description
ANTI-VeC webinar series: Latest trials of vector control strategies for vector-borne disease, and stakeholder/public engagement workshop

About this event

These webinars have two aims: 1) to provide vector-borne disease researchers with a status update of the latest trials for techniques to control mosquito and fly-borne disease, focusing on gene drive, endosymbionts and host-seeking manipulation techniques, and 2) to host an open discussion and opportunity for researchers working in these fields to pose questions to our expert panel. The second of our webinars aims to equip participants with tools and resources to help design and implement effective engagement strategies for trials of genetically modified organisms, transmission blocking, gene drive and other technologies.

By registering to this event, you will gain access to both webinars. If you wish to attend a specific webinar, we ask that you join before 10am the day before that webinar.

After this, we cannot guarantee that your membership will be processed in time, if you are not already an ANTI-VeC member.

You will receive links before each webinar via the ANTI-VeC Newsletter.

What is ANTI-VeC:

ANTI-VeC is a GCRF-funded network that aims to facilitate the development and implementation of novel control strategies for vector-borne diseases of enormous importance to human / animal health and agriculture in low and middle income countries of Africa, South East Asia and South and Central America. Since its launch in 2017, ANTI-VeC has enabled research projects through pump-priming grants, training and collaboration grants, conference bursaries and networking events.

Learn more about the network at our website.

Who are the webinars for:

The webinars serve our membership of vector-borne disease researchers, specifically those working in the fields of symbionts and transmission blocking, genetic modification technologies, gene drive systems, vector-pathogen interactions, sterility systems, population biology and modelling, vector behaviour, and field trials. If you are not currently an ANTI-VeC member please complete the membership form at our website, after which you will be given an ANTI-VeC ID number to enter into the Eventbrite registration.
