Malaria, Mosquitos and Models

ICMS and the Royal Society of Edinburgh present a public lecture on the epidemiology of malaria.

Professor Charles Godfray of Department of Zoology at University of Oxford will discuss worries that mosquitoes are developing insecticide resistance and look at control strategies, some involving mosquito pathogens, others novel genetic techniques. He will show how mathematical and computer modelling is used as a tool to explore which strategies may have the greatest impact in reducing disease.

The event takes place at 6pm on 17 June in the Royal Society of Edinburgh at 22 George Street, Edinburgh. Tickets are free but must be reserved in advance. Please telephone the ticket line on 0131 240 2780 or visit http://www.royalsoced.org.uk/events to reserve a ticket.

More information is available on the ICMS website.
