It is 120 years since Sir Ronald Ross discovered that the mosquito transmits the malaria parasite, and a lot has been done since then to combat the threat posed by mosquitoes, but are we any closer to controlling the devastating diseases spread by these insects?

 

We would like you to join us for an interactive afternoon of drinks and discussions for this year’s World Mosquito Day. You will explore the difficulties facing the development of new treatments, the different types of mosquito-borne diseases, and even create a timeline of influential events from the last 120 years. You will be able to speak with some of the top researchers in their field, understand how the landscape of mosquito research has changed, and the new challenges being faced. 

 

Come along, and be a part of the story.
