The Virtual Vector Laboratory is an interdisciplinary effort to create a new tool in the fight against diseases transmitted by insects.


Vector borne diseases kill over a million people every year and leave many more permanently debilitated. Our research aims to stimulate a collective approach toward global health care by using technology to empower citizens everywhere to not only protect themselves but contribute to a collective database of knowledge that can help others.
