Rosemary Lees

Rosemary leads the Methods Validation workstream of I2I. She is working with the Technical Team to identify areas of methodological weakness in the development and evaluation of vector control tools and seek to address these gaps through the development of consensus protocols, experimental validation of new and existing methods, and discussion with stakeholders to map out key areas of concern and generate consensus on solutions. She is a Programme Manager in the Vector Biology Department of LSTM, working with Hilary Ranson on research into insecticide resistance mechanisms and their impacts on vector control, and with industry partners to screen and evaluate the potential of new insecticides, formulations and products as well as application equipment and related technologies.
