Blood feeding arthropods like mosquitoes and ticks can transmit infectious diseases. Together they threaten half of the world’s population and cause close to 1 million deaths annually.
For many vector-borne diseases there are no vaccines or reliable medication.
We innovate enabling technology for discovery and testing of novel counter measures for vector borne diseases.
Our technology supports small to large scale screening of small molecules and biologicals.
Pathogens & Vectors
Our central focus revolves around the mechanisms by which pathogens are transmitted by their vectors and the molecular handles that allow us to interfere with the spread of vector-borne diseases.
