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.
We are excited to announce our final funding call, the Gnatwork Community Call. The application process is now closed.
The Gnatwork will be hosting two international workshops (Bangladesh 2018 and Brazil 2019) over the course of the project. We will have a number of travel bursaries available to enable early career researchers to attend.
The Ceratopogonidae Information Exchange
Hosted by Belmont University to provide information on the Dipteran family Ceratopogonidae.
As part of the Transformative Science project "Cracking sandfly dispersal with eggs: adaptation of an immunomarking technique for use with phlebotomine sandflies", Dr Raquel Santos Souza visited the UK for her training. Here she tells of about her trip.
Ento '19 'Vectors of Diseases' was held on the 20 - 22 August 2019 at The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), London.
Applications for the Travel Bursary are now open! We have 30 travel bursaries of up to £250 to attend the second Gnatwork Conference and Workshop in Brazil. Please click to see details.
Our second international workshop will be held in collaboration with Universidade Federal De Minas Gerais.
