Support functions for development of new technologies for controlling transmission of mosquito-borne diseases

Support Functions for Development of New Technologies for Controlling Transmission of Mosquito-Borne Diseases is a continuation of research initiated under the FNIH's Vector-based Control of Transmission: Discovery Research (VCTR) program and Eliminate Dengue program, which are extensions of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Grand Challenges in Global Health initiative. The project provides the FNIH management and advisory services for research programs seeking to develop new cost-effective and sustainable biologic strategies for controlling mosquito-borne infections like malaria and dengue fever.
