My research interest rely on the role of arthropods in the transmission of pathogens of Veterinary and Public Health relevance.

My experience as entomologist is based on the study of biting midges and mosquitoes of the Palearctic and Neotropical regions. My main domains of expertise include vector taxonomy, genetic-barcoding, bloodmeal host identification, distribution and diversity of species communities, surveillance and epidemiology of vector-borne diseases and experimental infections of vectors to study vector-pathogen interactions.

E-mail: renatoefabi [at] gmail.com

Graduated in Biological Sciences, with bachelor's degree from the University of São Paulo (1997). PhD in Sciences in the Epidemiology concentration area, Faculty of Public Health, University of São Paulo (2013). He is currently Scientific Researcher VI of the Adolfo Lutz Institute at the Regional Laboratory Center XII - Taubaté. I have been acting mainly in the phylogenetic analysis and molecular evolution of zoonotic pathogens, developing research in molecular epidemiology, phylogeography and philodynamics. I am interested in the ecology of arboviruses, hantaviruses, arenaviruses, leishmaniasis, trypanosomiasis and malaria, studying the geographical distribution of vectors and reservoirs and the development of spatial distribution models such as ecological niche modeling. I am also interested in understanding the ecological, virological and molecular factors behind the emergence of new pathogens and the process of pathogen sharing between animals and humans.

Many districts in West Bengal are endemic for Kala-azar. The number of cases are rising every year. Despite of performing Indoor Residual Spray in the endemic areas, there are abundant sandflies found during the post-IRS entomological survey. The reason behind this can be attributed to their change in habitat & resting places, increasing resistance against insecticides, poor management of patients leading to increased transmission of the disease and many more to discover. if these problems are addressed, will lead to change in the guidelines in the management of sandflies in an effective way.

 Diagnostic and chemotheraputic targets of filarial parasites. In addition,  I am interested in the intersection between the nematodes and insects: the molecular systems nematodes have evolved in order to use insects as vectors as well as the mechanisms insects use to minimize infection by parasites.

In the Medical Entomology Laboratory of the ULL we work mainly in mosquitoes, specifically in monitoring invasive mosquitoes and in pathogens of mosquitoes. However, it is of interest for us, to know more about these families of vectors, biting midges, blackflies and sandflies, presents in our area (Canary Islands) and to train staff in these topics.
