Reshaping the microbiota of mosquitoes to study its impact on malaria transmission
Malaria vectors can only transmit malaria after getting infected when biting infectious people. The mosquito microbiota protects its host against infection by parasites and negatively affects the mosquito fitness, impacting the chance of transmission. […]
Deciphering the innate immune defense of New World bat species to viral infection
Description: Emerging infectious diseases in humans often originate from pathogens transmitted from animal reservoirs. Among them, bats are important reservoirs of viruses. In French Guiana, where about a 100 bat species are present, due […]
Prevalence of: hepatitis B, C and E viruses, human immunodeficiency virus, and Human T-cell lymphotropic viruses among blood donors at the National Blood Transfusion Centre in Bangui, Central African Republic.
Description: Like most developing countries, the Central African Republic (CAR) is strongly affected by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic. The HIV prevalence rate in adults (15-49 years old) was estimated to be about […]
Evaluation of the use of non-invasive tests for early screening and survey of arboviruses
Description: The main objective of this pilot project, Arbo-VIRTUESS is to improve the early screening and survey of the arboviruses. Therefore, we propose to work towards non-invasive samples, i.e. saliva and urine, which could […]
Evaluation and scale up process of a new ELISA test for the detection of anti-chikungunya virus IgM
