    About This Project

    The recent zika outbreak highlights the importance of personal mosquito protection. The chemical DEET has been the gold standard in mosquito repellency since its civilian use began in 1957. DEET has important drawbacks and little is actually known about how it works. We wish to study how DEET manipulates the mosquito's senses to provide information that can lead to the development of more effective repellents to combat mosquito transmitted diseases.
