Lao – French lab 2 / Medical Entomology & Biology of Disease Vectors 2015-2016

Head of Lab : Paul T. Brey Ph.D.
Email: p.brey@pasteur.la

Main objective of the lab
The main objective of our lab is to study the biology and ecology of arthropod vectors (mosquitoes, sandflies, ticks, snails, etc.), as well as the transmission cycles of the viruses, parasites and other microbial pathogens they transmit. Furthermore, we are working on ways to mitigate vector borne disease transmission  in Lao PDR via vector control training programs.
