Project information

Gene-drive technologies are a promising new tool to reduce the density of the female Anopheles populations responsible for the transmission of malaria. The Target Malaria Consortium aims to develop gene-drive based technologies that reduce mosquito populations through a number of different strategies including biasing the sex ratio of mosquito populations and through reducing female fertility. We work as part of this consortium to using modelling to understand the potential impact of different target product profiles on malaria transmission in the trial settings and more widely, as well as to explore the potential interactions between these new technologies and existing control efforts.
