Project summary

Edi is a medical entomologist interested in molecular biology and understanding of complex phenomena in arthropods, including agricultural pests and disease vectors. His research project aims to combat insecticide resistance in the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae by developing a mechanistic understanding of organophosphate resistance, its relationship with pyrethroid resistance, and how negative cross-resistance between the insecticide classes can be exploited.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Training Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
