2 - Arthropod Vectors and Vector-Borne Pathogens
INF-ACT RESEARCH NODE 2:
Arthropod Vectors and Vector-Borne Pathogens

RESEARCH NODE 2: Arthropod Vectors and Vector-Borne Pathogens - LED BY (Spoke): UNIPD


Research node 2 gathers the most renowned experts working on arthropod vectors and vector-borne pathogens (VBPs) in Italy, including academicians and public health personnel from ISS and AIZS, and aims to bridge the gap between these communities to improve research capacity and translationality of research results. The ultimate goal is to improve preparedness to emerging and re-emerging VBDs in the country. We will: clarify still unknown features of vectors and VBPs and of their interaction (WP2.1, WP2.5); develop, validate and implement novel surveillance (WP2.2) and control (WP2.4) approaches customized for the Italian epidemiological situation, as well as novel diagnostic tools and therapeutic targets (WP2.5), contributing to research node 5 activities. These activities are expected to generate new fundamental knowledge and new tools for monitoring, surveillance, diagnosis and fight vectors and vector-borne pathogens (VBPs). Research node 2 will solidate the Italian VBP research network increasing sharing of knowledge, samples, protocols, and guidelines. Through an integrated National Reference Relational Database (NRRD) of arthropod vectors, VBPs and microbiota and a National Vector Repository (NVR) (WP2.3), we will monitor vector presence, distribution and seasonality and centralize these data for exploitation for epidemiological analyses in synergy with research node 4. NVR will increase research potential in Italy and abroad by openly sharing information about characterized vectors samples and their microbiota.
