Study infectious diseases and react to the emergence of new pathogens. It is the corn that the epidemiology department sets itself, the research is multidisciplinary.
The Medical Entomology Unit (UEM) shares its activities between research, public health expertise and teaching.
The unit for the development of research programs on the transmission of malaria and on the ecology of arthropod vectors of arboviruses. Research activities on bioecology, genetics of vector populations and virus-vector-vertebrate interactions, the impact of climate change and the environment on vector dynamics and model development for analyzes and Forecasting the spatio-temporal risks of vector pressure and the development of control strategies through the development or evaluation of new sampling and control tools.
PROGRAM 1: ECOLOGY OF ARBOVIRUS VECTORS
UEM is studying the mechanisms of maintenance and emergence of arboviruses. We research the factors related to viruses, vertebrate hosts, vectors and the environment that control the emergence and expression of viruses in humans and animals from their natural ecological niche under favorable conditions.
PROGRAM 2: TRANSMISSION MALARIA VECTOR
Research is focused on the bioecology and genetics of vectors in relation to climatic and environmental factors with major objectives of monitoring their evolution for a better knowledge of the targets in the development of the control strategy.
