Project summary

Christophe is a medical entomologist with research interests in malaria vector biology and vector control. He is based at the Malaria Research Laboratory of OCEAC Yaoundé. His goals include: mapping the distribution of urban breeding sites of malaria vectors to guide potential larviciding activities; assessing the molecular basis of insecticide resistance mechanisms and patterns of cross-resistance with xenobiotics found in breeding sites; and assessing the influence of insecticide resistance on mosquito capacity to transmit malaria. Understanding all of these factors could improve vector control strategies in Cameroon.

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