Research in the section explores broad population biology questions relevant to patterns of malaria transmission and vector control. Ecological, behavioral, genetic, and molecular approaches are used in our research. Studies are conducted at National Institutes of Health facilities in Rockville, Maryland, and at the Malaria Research and Training Center (MRTC) in Bamako, Mali. The MRTC is the result of NIAID’s long-term collaboration with Malian scientists and physicians at the National School of Medicine. The MRTC is now a well-equipped, highly productive program where research is led and executed by Malian staff.
Research at the MRTC is focused on malaria but also addresses other vector-borne diseases, such as leishmaniasis. This exceptional research center provides NIAID researchers with unique opportunities for field-lab studies. In our research projects, we seek discoveries that improve understanding of phenotypic diversity in vector species, its adaptive value, and epidemiological consequences.
Major research questions include:
Inquiries about predoctoral and postdoctoral fellowships are welcome.
