MOOC on Medical Entomology organized by Institut Pasteur
Institut Pasteur presents its free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Medical Entomology.
The MOOC “Medical Entomology” will teach the role of vectors in the functioning of ecosystems and how to interrupt the vector transmission chain. It is organized from an entomological perspective, with each session devoted to a particular taxonomic group of insects and ticks. The MOOC is dedicated to students in biological or medical sciences, public health advisors (human and animal health), stakeholders in vector control, researchers and NGO members.
This MOOC is organized in 6 weeks of 3-6 sequences, starting on March 18th. Each sequence is composed of a 10 minutes video and a multiple choice test to help students check their understanding. The videos are in English subtitled in French and English. You can enrol here.
The third week of the course will focus on Insect vectors and Parasites, focusing on the history of malaria control strategies or the population genetics of the malaria vectors, among others.
