Keystone Symposia SciTalk 2017: Sheila Ogoma

In collaboration with the Keystone Symposia, MESA brings you this SciTalk from the "Malaria: From Innovation to Eradication" conference in Uganda, February 2017

Title: "A low technology emanator treated with the volatile pyrethroid transfluthrin confers long-term protection against outdoor biting vectors of lymphatic filariasis, arboviruses and malaria"

Speaker: Sheila Ogoma, US National Research Council; US Army Medical Research Directorate, Kenya in Kisumu

The research mentioned here was conducted at the Ifakara Health Institute, Tanzania

In February 2017, malaria experts from around the world gathered in Kampala, Uganda at "Malaria: From Innovation to Eradication", a conference organized by Keystone Symposia in collaboration with MESA.  SciTalks are in-conference short talks and poster presentations recorded on video and shared on the Internet, and are designed to extend the reach of the science present within each Keystone Symposia conference.
