How will climate change affect mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, chikungunya and Zika? Two experts will weigh in during NIAID’s Mosquito Day webinar on Tuesday, Aug. 16 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET.

Dr. Matthew Thomas, professor at the University of Florida, will discuss current knowledge and priorities for future research to improve understanding of mosquito-parasite-temperature interactions and better predict responses to environmental change. Dr. Elizabeth McGraw, professor at Penn State University, will discuss the current literature and recent work in her lab, in this evolving field.
