Research findings will help in the fight against dengue fever

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

Anna M Stewart, PhD, MPAAnna Stewart-Ibarra PhD, MPA will talk about a study by an international team of researchers she led, on dengue fever. The research provided public health officials with information that will help decrease the risk of dengue, a life-threatening mosquito-borne viral disease that is now one of the fastest spreading tropical diseases globally. Stewart-Ibarra team discovered that certain household risk factors, combined with changes in rainfall and minimum temperature, could be used to predict the presence and abundance of the mosquito that transmits dengue fever. Stewart-Ibarra works in the Center for Global Health and Translational Science (CGHATS) at Upstate Medical University.
