Did you miss the unmissable science at the ASTMH conference last November? Listen now to the session on 'New Strategies & Tools Targeting Malaria Transmission'.

Marcelo Jacobs Lorena talks on tools like paratagenesis and genetic techniques in vector biology, and the importance of considering population niches in designing strategies to reduce mosquito numbers.
Matthias Marti presents research on gametocytes sequestration in bone marrow and spleen.
Ashley Birkett speaks about work by multiple partners on vaccine candidates to interrupt transmission.
Elizabeth Winzler presents work on cellular screening methods to develop sterilising medicines which target dormant reservoirs of parasites.
Sara Volkman talks about how parasite population genetics can be used as proxies for transmission.
 
Chairs: Marcelo Jacobs Lorena (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health) and Dyann Wirth (Harvard School of Public Health).
