TropIQ awarded large research grant to uncover new mosquito repellents.

  Together with researchers from the University of Washington, TropIQ was awarded 1.3 million USD from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to find new mosquito repellents and thus aid the fight against mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue and Zika. The project combines artificial intelligence, high-throughput mosquito testing and neurophysiological studies of mosquitos’ sensory…

TropIQ assists in life cycle profiling of genetically modified chimeric Plasmodium parasite.

To broaden the protective spectrum of a potential whole parasite vaccine against malaria, a chimeric P. falciparum parasite expressing P. falciparum and P. vivax circumsporozoite protein (csp) was generated. This parasite performed comparable to wild type P. falciparum and therefore supports its use in optimizing whole parasite vaccine studies. read more here
