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 will have two funding calls to support collaborative small-scale studies within the community: Validation (2018) and Transformative Science (2019)
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.
