UMiami: Dr. Andre Wilke Invited to Serve as Guest Editor for a Special Issue of Insects

Dr.Andre Wilke, PhD, a post-doctoral associate at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Department of Public Health Sciences, has been invited to serve as Guest Editor for Insects – an international, peer-reviewed open-access journal of entomology that is published monthly by the Molecular Diversity Preservation International and Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI).

Dr. Wilke will be responsible for handling papers for “Vector-Borne Diseases in a Changing World,” a special issue of Insects, for which the deadline to submit is October 21, 2020. He will serve as guest editor of the special issue alongside, Dr. Mauro Toledo Marrelli, a professor at the University of São Paulo School of Public Health’s Department of Epidemiology.

Vector-Borne Diseases in a Changing World will be comprised of studies investigating how global increases in temperatures and urbanization are impacting the epidemiology of vector-borne diseases, resulting in severe outbreaks, even in formerly non-endemic areas.

“It is essential to understand how vector species are adapting and thriving in urban environments to guide and improve future vector management and control strategies,” Dr. Wilke said.
