The Institut Pasteur Medical Entomology MOOC is now open

The MOOC Medical Entomology, created by the Institut Pasteur and directed by Anna-Bella Failloux, is now open for registration on FUN, a French MOOC platform. Anna-Bella Failloux is the head of the Arboviruses and Insect Vectors Unit.

This MOOC aims at providing participants at the university level with the understanding in medical and veterinary entomology. It will teach the role of vectors in the functioning of ecosystems and, in a lot of cases, how to interrupt the vector transmission chain. It is organized from an entomological perspective, with each session devoted to a particular taxonomic group of insects and ticks.

Registrations are open here from March 29th to June 26th 2021.
