Dengue research Framework for Resisting Epidemics in Europe (DENFREE),

Budget: 409305

Identification of key factors determining dengue transmission and development of novel diagnostic tools to detect asymptomatic infections via predictive models that enable specific interventions to reduce epidemic probability, and diagnostic methods for surveillance.

This multidisciplinary research project should allow scientists to build predictive models to anticipate future epidemics, to determine precisely what methods are more efficient in controlling mosquitoes, and to create a diagnostic kit that would be more sensitive and less invasive than the one currently in use.
