The meeting will take the form of 4 weekly webinars between mid-November and mid-December, including a short talk on how the network has been adapting to COVID-19 restrictions, before talks from ANTI-VeC funded pump-priming projects and next steps from ANTI-VeC.

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

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 panels. 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.
