Sebastien Marcombe is from Vector Control Consulting – South East Asia , He is French, PhD, biologist, expert in medical entomology, focusing first on malaria and arboviruses mosquito vectors and Public Health vector control management, including insecticide resistance management. My main specialties as a scientist/project leader are medical entomology, biochemistry, biology, molecular biology and, capacity building.

The first part of my career, from 2005 to 2011 was devoted to mosquito control and insecticide resistance studies (PhD) in the Caribbean (La Martinique) with the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD). Then, I also have had the opportunities to work with the Center for Vector Biology at Rutgers University in New Jersey, USA between 2011 and 2013. The work was focused on the Asian Tiger Mosquito, vector of Dengue, Zika, and Chikungunya, its insecticide resistance mechanisms and control in the east coast of USA. Since 2013, I have led more than 7 different projects focused on Malaria and Dengue control in Laos PDR at the Institut Pasteur du Laos (IPL). During eight years in Laos, my projects, aimed to help the Public Health authorities of Lao PDR for vector control allowed me to develop strong collaborations and partnerships with local authorities and ministries, specifically in Laos but also in Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar and, Vietnam. These scientific activities, assembled with the development of capacity building and partnership with the government of Laos led to a change in their policies of insecticide use in the country. I have also actively participated in the elaboration of the National Strategic Plans to fight against Dengue and the Malaria Elimination Plan in Lao PDR for the coming years.

I have nearly 20 years of experience in surveillance, control, taxonomy, ecology of insect vectors and transmission of human vector-borne disease pathogens, in Europe, the Caribbean, the USA, and South East Asia. I am recognized as a leader in mosquito control and insecticide resistance management and throughout my career I devoted much time to training and capacity building.

With my new official company, VCC-SEA (Vector Control Consultancy, South East Asia, SOLE CO., LTD), I am offering my expertise on mosquito vector borne disease control in the Lao PDR and South East Asia. I am also importing and selling specific, proven efficient mosquito traps to protect individual households, companies, hotels, resorts and important public areas against re-emerging diseases such as Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya transmitted by mosquitoes (https://www.in2care.org/mosquito-trap/ ; https://www.in2care.org/videos/ ).
