Prepatory questions for the panel
Both panel topics relate to quantifying malaria transmission, but, broadly speaking, in different directions; Characterizing the malaria reservoir is to determine who infects mosquitoes and thus primarily involves the human to mosquito side of transmission, while measuring transmission mainly focuses on infection endpoints in mosquitoes and humans and represents transmission from the mosquito to humans. The challenge for the panel lies in linking these two topics in a way that is understandable for both research and control and that facilitates the move to elimination.
Please keep in mind that there are five other Panels, including one dedicated to 'basic science and enabling technologies', ‘tools for elimination’ and one dedicated to ‘insecticide and drug resistance’.
Regarding characterizing the reservoir and measuring transmission, what new knowledge, evidence, technologies and tools do we have today that we did not have 5 years ago? Please provide some notes and/or citations e.g PubMED or grey literature.
What research (basic and operational) is ongoing which will advance progress in this field? Please provide information about any relevant and ongoing projects. (MESA Track < http://www.malariaeradication.org/mesa-track> may be a helpful resource.
What are the critical research questions for the next 5-10 years for characterizing the sub-clinical reservoir and measuring transmission? Please list 5-10 new research questions.
