    Kevin O. Ochwedo is a molecular biologist with a passion for improving people's health and well-being by participating in programs aimed at malaria transmission reduction and eradication. He is actively involved in genetic epidemiology and entomological studies of parasites and vectors. His most recent publication on Plasmodium falciparum passive surveillance aims to persuade public health policymakers to supplement microscopic examination of blood samples with ultrasensitive diagnostic tools in order to support WHO's strategy of early detection and treatment of malaria patients. This, he believes, will help reduce the large number of untreated patients with false-negative malaria diagnoses who may be acting as a reservoir for P. falciparum transmission to vectors within malaria endemic zones in Sub-Saharan Africa.

    I am a molecular biologist who specialises in controlling insects that spread deadly or debilitating diseases like malaria, dengue, and zika.  After studying in Brazil, I received my training at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine - LSTM and in 2015 was awarded PhD in Tropical Medicine from the University of Liverpool.  After graduation, I returned to Brazil to set up and lead a research group at the Universidade Estadual da Paraíba - UEPB. Currently, my group focused on identifying genetic mutations that arise when mosquitoes develop resistance to the insecticides we use to control them. This forms part of a country-wide disease management strategy, and the results we generate are used to monitor populations for developing resistance, which directly feeds back to the ministry of health decision-makers. Recently, I re-join the Department Vector Biology at LSTM as associate researcher / Wellcome Trust fellow where now I lead a project, which addresses the impact of insecticide resistance and adaptation of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes and how this contributes to their transmission of arboviral diseases in Brazil.

    Research Interest: Evolutionary Genetics of insecticide resistance, Vector-borne diseases and integrative approaches for vector control.

    My name is Guichuan Lai, a medical doctor, currently working in the department of health statistics at Chongqing Medical University. I have published 16 SCI papers in the past 2 years, and served as a longtime reviewer for Frontiers, BMC, Springer, and the Elsevier. My research area is exploring biomarkers of diseases using bioinformatics and network science methods, including single-cell sequencing technology, network medicine technology, and machine learning methods. Finally, I hope to be able to create value for the journal through my own experience. Here are the SCI articles I have published in the last two years:

    As a microbiologist and academic lecturer, I have been working on microorganisms that are related to human and health issues. Relatively, I have been interested in the development of bacteria  resistance against chemotherapeutic  agents  which  is  becoming  an  increasing  problem  specially  the  Multi  Drugs  Resistant Bacteria (MDR), and this had the potential to facilitate more rational thinking about the implementation of Bacteriophages as integrated therapeutically framework. I have been working on the environmental impacts of microorganisms that are related to new industrial issues. Also I have been interested on the microorganisms that inhabit, create, or contaminate food, food-safety and their products which can be used to combat pathogenic microbes. In recent years, much interest has been shown in the use of bacteria as probiotic organisms and their potential for disease prevention in humans and animals.
