MIVEGEC develops integrative research on the molecular and ecological mechanisms that maintain and/or amplify the maintenance and transmission of pathogens.
The themes cover a broad spectrum, combining fundamental aspects of biology, genetics, ecology and evolution of parasitic and symbiotic systems with more finalised objectives of developing tools and strategies capable of reducing the spread of diseases in humans and animals, in particular through integrated management of ecosystems and the control of insect vectors
This places MIVEGEC at the interface between Public Health and Environment, Biology and Medicine, Ecology and Evolution.
This research applies to various infectious models (parasites, viruses, bacteria, etc.) as well as to non-infectious models such as cancer.
