Strategic Focus

The interdisciplinary GEM Group is committed to teaching, research, and community outreach of entomological aspects of diseases transmitted or caused by arthropods. Its purpose is to train professionals with critical, scientific, and human capacity, promoting research areas and innovative community outreach in basic and bio-ecoepidemiological aspects of arthropod-host-environment interlinkages based on its research areas.

Research Areas and Topics

  • Poisonous arthropods.
  • Education for the control of arthropods of medical importance.
  • Myiasis in humans.
  • Pediculosis.
  • Insecticide resistance in arthropod vectors.
  • Eco-epidemiological studies of vector-borne diseases.
