Research on Dengue

The College is collaborating closely with partners in the state of Sonora to understand and prevent dengue. In 2012 we received a four-year grant from the National Institute of Health to study dengue in this region. Evidence suggests that there is a gradient of transmission across the Arizona-Sonora border region. Even though most of the urban areas have the mosquito that transmits disease some urban areas have not had dengue and some neighborhoods in cities with dengue are less affected.
