"The Role of BEI Resources in the Support of Arthropod Vector Research" as presented on
April 21, 2023
Vector-borne microbial pathogens have evolved a series of strategies to evade the immune system and establish infections in the mammalian host. In this setting, BEI Resources functions as a centralized bioresource for accessibility of reference strains of arthropod vectors to the global public health scientific community. The BEI Vector Resources program currently provides over 60 colonies of live mosquitoes as well as Ixodid and soft ticks, sandflies, black flies and triatomines. We recently presented a webinar entitled “The Role of BEI Resources in the Support of Arthropod Vector Research” on April 21, 2023. Attendees learned about the process to request vectors and reagents from BEI Resources, procedures for the care and maintenance of insect vector colonies and investigator-led research projects enabled by BEI Vector Resources.
