Profile

Overview :

Entomology is the knowledge of insects, the most abundant form of animal life on earth. In tropical and subtropical regions, attention is drawn to the role of insects in transmitting diseases (vectors) that are caused by pathogens such as parasite (malaria, trypanosomiasis, filariasis,etc), viruses (dengue, encephalitis, chikungunya,etc), bacteria (salmonellosis, rickettsiosis, borrelia,etc) or and causing nuisance have serious social and economic consequences. Thus, the study on insects is a major scientific dicipline that impact on the medical and veterinary aspects.

Objective :

Our objective is to carry out excellent research that is nationally and internationally at the forefront and (inter)nationally well-connected, while collaborative with Institute of Tropical Disease (ITD) Airlangga University. The entomology studies collaboration has an  outstanding focusing in bionomic, ecology, epidemiology, vector control, and molecular biology approaches.

Mission :

Our mission is to unravel the ecological interaction between insects and other factors by combining ecological and molecular studies with investigations of the underlying mechanisms. Vector and diseases management strategies are being develop for eradication or controlling against insect borne diseases.

Laboratory activities :

  •  Mosquito survey
  • Mosquito colonization
  • Insect cell culture
  • Isolation ( Parasite and Virus )
  • Insecticide test
  • Study on insects
  • Enlightenment and training
Output :
  1. Publication (National and International Journals)
  2. Patent of Product
  3. Collaboration with Universities, Industries, and others.
