Research on mosquito species and their role in arbovirus transmission, detection etc.
1. Rody Blom: I am studying mosquito ecology and activity patterns. I will use field sampling and citizen science to acquire more information on important biological characteristics such as species-specific host preferences and activity patterns.
4. Jurrian van Irsel: I will include some information on mosquitoes, but this will be focused on Culex pipiens and involves only minor inclusion. No field work involved concerning mosquitoes .
5. Marianne Rijtma: I will use data on mosquito density and distribution in my WNV risk map.
7. Ayat Abourashed: I will work on mosquito surveillance.
8. Kiki Streng: Mosquitoes will be captured at livestock barns (to determine their presence and abundance inside and outside barns).
9. Mariken de Wit: Will be included as a vector in all models.
10. Afonso Dimas Martins: Mosquitoes will be the main vector in our model.
13. Charlotte Linthout: I will use different mosquito species for vector competence studies: Culex pipiens pipiens; Culex pipiens molestus; Aedes japonicas; Aedes albopictus.
14/24. Jurgen Moonen: I will be studying only mosquito immunity.
14/24. Tom van der Most: The project looks at arboviral presence and naturally-infecting viruses in Dutch Culex pipiens and the Culex pipiens anti-viral immune response.
15. Sam Boerlijst: Experiments on species specific population dynamics.
17. Imke Visser: I will obtain mosquito saliva from different mosquito species to determine their role in arbovirus transmission to the vertebrate host.
21. Pauline de Best: Interventions will be targeted at mosquitoes, so while I do not directly use mosquitoes, this is a specie of interest within my project.
26. Joyce van Bree: Using mosquito protein lysate to see which human proteins bind CpG/UpA dinucleotides.
(27) Martha Dellar: Working with PhD12 to create mosquito model and will use this to see how mosquito populations are likely to change in the future.
