Biography

Scott O'Neill (PhD FAA FAAAS) is the Director of the Institute of Vector-Borne Disease at Monash University. He has spent his academic career at the University of Illinois, Yale University, the University of Queensland and Monash University where until recently he was the Dean of Science.

Prof O'Neill leads a large international research collaboration, The Eliminate Dengue Program. This program is working on the development of Wolbachia as a novel method to block the transmission of dengue fever and other mosquito transmitted viral diseases like zika and chikungunya. The Eliminate Dengue program - a global not for profit - is conducting field trials of the novel Wolbachia method in multiple countries. More information can be found at www.eliminatedengue.com
