  • New Tools I: Vector Control

Dr Sarah Moore, a group leader at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health institute, University of Basel, is a vector ecologist. She specializes in the chemical ecology and control of Anopheles mosquitos with a focus on new and existing methods of repelling mosquitos to protect individuals, households, and communities. She works on phase I, phase II, and phase III evaluations of vector control products using standard methods and devising novel methodologies for evaluation of new products where appropriate. All of these projects involve rigorous multidisciplinary field and laboratory evaluation of methods to reduce mosquito-borne disease transmission. The research also has a strong social science component to ensure that technologies developed are compatible with the needs and wishes of the communities that use them. Much of her work involves developing appropriate technologies and methodologies for the Eastern African setting. Dr Moore is based full time at Ifakara Health Institute in Tanzania.
