Impact of insecticide resistance on mosquito sialomes and its effect on vectorial capacity of the main African malaria vectors

Project summary

Emmanuel is a medical entomologist with an interest in the impact of insecticide resistance on malaria control. During this Fellowship he aims to investigate the impact of insecticide resistance on the sialomes of natural populations of African malaria vectors, assess how these sialome changes impact the Anopheles vectorial capacity, and investigate the impact of the sialome changes on sporozoite migration in the salivary glands. Emmanuel will be working closely with Dr Parfait Awono, OCEAC, Cameroon, and Dr Charles Wondji of Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. The expected results will provide relevant information on patterns of malaria transmission in the context of insecticide resistance.

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