I have been invited to give an oral presentation of our Aedes albopictus expansion paper at the upcoming Pan-Dengue meeting sponsored by the Gorgas Memorial Institute in Panama City. It’s always fun to return to my adopted homeland and meet up with friends and collaborators.

Given the controversial nature of our paper, I’m expecting a some fireworks at the talk. But, it’s important to remember that everyone shares the goal of controlling, if not eliminating, serious vector-borne diseases such as dengue and Chikungunya…we just have different professional opinions on the best way to do that.
