Vector Biology and Disease Interest Group

The Vector Biology and Ecology SIG is a University of Glasgow research cluster that brings together researchers with common interests and expertise in the biology and control of arthropod disease vectors and the pathogens they spread.

The SIG encompasses expertise in a wide variety of scientific approaches, ranging from laboratory-based studies to large-scale ecological and epidemiological studies in disease endemic settings, in which vectors and their pathogens are studied at molecular, genetic, cellular, organismal, and population levels.

Group coordinators: 

Dr Francesco Baldini and Dr Heather Ferguson
