The Pan-African Mosquito Control Association (PAMCA) will be holding the 9th edition of its Annual Conference & Exhibition from September 17-21, 2023, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. As part of the conference, PAMCA is organizing two training courses on gene drive technologies. Applications for both these courses are now open until June 25.

The training courses are intended to provide a basic technical understanding of gene drive technologies and will cover topics such as public acceptance, regulatory issues and ecological concerns. African graduate students, researchers in biology, medicine, social science, policy makers, as well as health professionals with an interest in genetics and biotechnology, are invited to apply.
