Impact of using insecticides to control Anopheles mosquito, vector of the Malaria causer agent plasmodium

Grant number: 14/07615-3
Support type:Scholarships in Brazil - Scientific Initiation
Effective date (Start): June 01, 2014
Effective date (End): August 10, 2016
Field of knowledge:Physical Sciences and Mathematics - Mathematics - Applied Mathematics
Principal researcher:Cláudia Pio Ferreira
Grantee:Silas Poloni Lyra
Home Institution: Instituto de Biociências (IBB). Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP). Campus de Botucatu. Botucatu , SP, Brazil
Associated scholarship(s):15/20059-5 - Modelling the behavior change of Anopheles population after the introduction of ITNs and RIs, BE.EP.IC


It is intended to model the behavior and abundance of Anopheles mosquitoes populations involved in malaria transmission. It will be built models based on agents with the objective of studying the interaction between human and vectorial populations. Different parameters sets will describe distinct scenarios and efficiency of mosquito population control methods will be discussed.
