Transmission dynamics of Old World arenaviruses in natural populations of their reservoir hostOngoing
Rodents are a major reservoir of human zoonotic (animal origin) diseases in Sub-Saharan Africa. To understand and control the spread of these diseases, it is essential to know how parasite transmission relates to rodent density. The aim of this project is to test candidate mechanisms that allow an infection to persist in fluctuating rodent populations. This information will help to develop strategies for the management of rodent borne infections.
