Curing Malaria, Controlling Mosquitoes Symposium Set For AAAS Meeting

PHILADELPHIA, PA - Dr. Rita R. Colwell, president, University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, will speak on "Malaria: Controlling Mosquito Breeding, Finding a Cure" as part of a symposium at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting and Science Innovation Exposition in Philadelphia.

The symposium, "Kill All the Mosquitoes or Cure Malaria? Communicating Controversy to Citizens," takes place at 9 a.m. on Sunday, February 15.

Other speakers on the topic of whether malaria can be prevented while also protecting the diversity of mosquitoes will include Carole A. Long, Allegheny University of the Health Sciences, and Sheila Jasanoff, Cornell University. Following the presentations, discussants Marcia C. Linn, University of California-Berkeley; Shirley A. Malcolm, AAAS; Floyd E. Bloom, Scripps Research Institute and AAAS; and Audrey B. Champagne, State University of New York -Albany will consider the role of controversy in advancing science learning and improving public understanding of science.

The symposium is the culmination of a debate that began as an online Internet discussion last fall among experts who are trying to find a cure for drug-resistant forms of malaria, investigating ways to control the breeding of mosquitoes, and developing transmission-blocking vaccines for malaria.

The AAAS annual meeting will take place from February 12-17 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Reporters may register and obtain accreditation at the newsroom, located in Room 405, Philadelphia Marriott Hotel, 1201 Market St. The newsroom opens on Thursday, February 12.
