General Description of the Research Project This cooperative research project aims to develop antibodies to mosquito salivary antigens as tools to measure exposure to malaria vectors and risk of malaria transmission in the Greater Mekong Subregion. We will assess whether these novel sero-surveillance tools can be used to measure the impact of preventive interventions on vector exposure and malaria transmission at an individual and population level
