Insecticide Research

The Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC) is a partnership of various academic and medical insistutions dedicated to the rapid development of new insecticides and other methods of vector control. With $50.7 million in seed funding from the Gates Foundation, the IVCC is novel both in its scale and focus on public health applications. Agricultural demand has always driven the development of new insecticides, as public health applications are tiny and unprofitable in comparison.
