Gerry Killeen is an ecologist and epidemiologist who has spent over 18 years living in east Africa, working on the behavioural ecology of mosquitoes and biologically rational approaches to more effective control of vector borne parasites like malaria and lymphatic filariasis, as well as arboviruses like Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya. Gerry’s previous work on malaria vectors has helped shape global policies on coverage targets and target product profiles for insecticide treated nets and established implementation models for larval source management with environmentally friendly biological insecticides. Gerry’s work on the host preferences and feeding behaviours of malaria vector mosquitoes has influenced ongoing global research investment priorities and his recent move to UCC through an AXA Research Chair Award extends that work to examine how community-based wildlife conservation creates both obstacles and opportunities for enhanced malaria vector control in Africa. Closer to home, undergraduate research projects Gerry supervises include the influence of captivity on vocal territorial advertising by Asiatic lions at Fota Wildlife Park and risks of avian pathogen importation into Ireland through migratory birds.

Let’s become more aware about the WHO (World Health Organisation)

LIVE Q&A with Dr Mike Ryan and Dr Maria Van Kerkhove about COVID-19 epi situation and variants – YouTube: Early June meeting 2021.

These remarkable people at the WHO have allocated time to discuss the Pandemic and answer questions. What is of particular importance is their references to what the young people have contributed and their potential. Our future depends on many who are not in the category of “takers” ie let’s go to space first ie Musk Bezos and now Richard Branson who started Virgin who wants to be their first ie as a profiteer but to give credence and thanks to those who are willing to give of their time, effort and in many cases without remuneration. Many of them are the hidden scientists and academics, administrators, drivers, computer ple and so many more who do not want to be known but who care enough to make the world a better place.
