About our funders

The Gnatwork (BB/R005362/1) is one of four Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Networks in vector-borne disease research that are co-funded by The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), Medical Research Council (MRC) and Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).

Other Networks

Three other networks have been funded as part of the GCRF Networks in Vector Borne Disease Research:

  1. Building out Vector-Borne Diseases in sub-Saharan Africa (BOVA). BOVA aims to stimulate research in the area of vector-borne diseases and the built environment (@BovaNetwork).
  2. Community Network for African Vector-Borne Plant Viruses (CONNECTED), which aims to build a sustainable network of international scientists and researchers to address the challenges of vector-borne plant viruses in Africa (@CONNECTED_Virus).
  3. Application of Novel Transgenic technology & Inherited symbionts to Vector Control (ANTI-VeC), which focuses on the development of genetic/symbiont vector control strategies and related fields (@AntiVec).
