The Gnatwork: building capacity for research on neglected vectors
The Gnatwork brings together researchers on blackflies, sandflies and biting midges from around the world to address technical issues that arise when working on small biting flies.
Over the course of the Gnatwork, we have run three funding calls to support collaborative small-scale studies within the community.
The Gnatwork hosted two international workshops (Bangladesh 2018 and Brazil 2019) over the course of the project.
The Ceratopogonidae Information Exchange
Hosted by Belmont University to provide information on the Dipteran family Ceratopogonidae.
‘Hands on’ Course on Arthropods of Medical and Veterinary Significance: A global perspective, from theory to practice. 6 - 10 July 2020.
Our Network Manager travelled to Ghana with Dr Marion England to meet her project co-investigator and visit project field sites
2019 was a big year for The Gnatwork which culminated in our final workshop in Brazil.
So we wanted to share our favourite moments and best memories from the very busy year that was 2019.
Happy New Year to all our members!
Our final meeting will be held at The Pirbright Institute, UK (May 2020)
