What do plague, malaria and chikungunya have in common?

These diseases and many others - or more precisely the causal agents responsible - are spread by vectors. A vector is a transmission agent. Certain invertebrates - mainly insects - carry microscopic organisms that cause diseases and transmit them to humans and animals when they feed.


Through this exhibition, you will discover a world of vectors and the research conducted by scientists to better know them and organize the "antivectorial" fight.
