Next generation of entomologists share their research in Malaria Consortium webinar

8 July 2020

Since 2017, seven exceptional students from across Africa and Asia have received Malaria Consortium’s Dr Sylvia Meek Scholarship in Entomology. As many of the scholars’ studies have drawn to a close, they were given the chance to present their research projects during a Malaria Consortium webinar: ‘The next generation of entomologists: What the future holds’. 

The webinar also afforded an opportunity to remember the immense contribution to infectious disease and malaria in particular, of Dr Sylvia Meek, a Malaria Consortium co-founder, whose untimely passing in 2016 led to the creation of the scholarship.  

The full recording of the webinar is available below with presentations from the following scholars: 

Takalani Makhanthisa presenting on: Effectiveness of cattle-administered endectocides to reduce malaria-vector mosquitoes
