Gerard Killeen

Biography

Prof Gerry Killeen is the AXA Research Chair in Applied Pathogen Ecology at the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences. Prior to joining UCC, Professor Killeen was based at the Ifakara Health Institute (IHI) in Tanzania for over 16 years, during which time he established what is now known as its Environmental Health and Ecological Sciences Department. During his time in Tanzania, he worked for the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Durham University and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute. Before that he worked at the International Center of Insect Physiology and Ecology in Kenya and Tulane University in the USA. He has supported several national malaria control programmes and established the locally managed Dar es Salaam City Council Urban Malaria Control Programme, which is now being used as a model system for Government scale up of active larval source management of malaria vector mosquitoes to all major urban centers in Tanzania. He works on a variety of basic and applied aspects of malaria transmission control, especially vector control, with a strong emphasis upon quantitative ecology and mathematical modeling, as well as capacity strengthening at individual, systems and institutional levels. More recently, he has also started working on applying some of these new methodologies and control tools to combat Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya viruses, as well as developing new mathematical models of transmission and containment dynamics for the 2019 novel coronavirus.

Research Interests

BASIC RESEARCH AND INNOVATION
1.  Diverse basic science investigations into the environmental biological, epidemiological and social/societal basis of mosquito-borne pathogen transmission.
2.  Mortality-based phage-display selection of antibodies against mosquito midgut antigens.
3.  Mosquito trapping methods and data management systems, including evaluations up to multi-country scale.
4.  Novel geographic and remote sensing methodologies for mapping malaria risk based on habitat distributions and mosquito dispersal patterns.
5.  Novel analytical methods to determine age, species and physiological status of mosquitoes.
6.  Large-cage mesocosms for developing vector control interventions with levels of safety, precision, throughput and experimental control that are impossible under full-field conditions . The facility I initially helped evaluate in Kenya is still extensively used, and similar systems have since been established in Australia, USA, Mexico, Cuba, Sudan, Tanzania and Burkina Faso.
7.  Development and/or evaluation of diverse conventional and novel vector control methods, some of which have completed independent trials.
8.  New trapping and analytical methods for quantifying the proportions of human exposure to mosquitoes bites which occurs indoors versus outdoors, and validation as epidemiological predictors of malaria risk. These approaches are now being applied by independent groups in Kenya, Benin, The Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Equatorial Guinea, Cambodia, Senegal,  Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Colombia, Ecuador and Haiti.
9.  Novel but simple and intuitive mathematical models for rational selection, optimization and evaluation of vector control interventions based on field measurements of mosquito behaviour and mortality.
10.  Community-based mosquito trapping schemes for vector population dynamics surveillance at unprecedented scale and resolution developed and validated as predictive of malaria risk. National scale-up ongoing in Tanzania and Zambia and being piloted in Kenya.
11.  Community-based systems for regular screening and treatment of human populations that enable programmatic monitoring of malaria incidence with high sensitivity and spatial resolution.
12.  Demonstrated that the term “asymptomatic” malaria is a misnomer, because chronic infections are associated with high disease burden that can be addressed by community health workers.

TRANSLATION INTO POLICY AND PRACTICE
1.  Contributions to policy debate through reviews, perspectives and commentaries, as well as consultancy support for WHO evidence synthesis and policy formulation, resulting in long-overdue formal acknowledgment that eradication of malaria will require new vector control technologies to target numerous behaviourally resilient mosquito species. With permission from WHO, BMGF utilized wording from this evidence review in the round 14 call for their Grand Challenges in Global Health scheme, and I recently acted as lead consultant for the Revolutionize Malaria Vector Control initiative by the Parker Foundation.
2.  Based on my preceding historical review work, I established the Dar es Salaam Urban Malaria Control Programme (UMCP) and developed it into a south-centred institutional collaboration with a clear hierarchical structure for vertical management of community-based larval source management of malaria vectors. In the initial pilot phase alone, the larval source management interventions delivered by this programme halved malaria risk for >600,000 people. This programme was subsequently assimilated, funded and scaled up by the Government of Tanzania (GoT). Our independent evaluation of the government-run phase of this programme demonstrates continued impact upon vector density and malaria prevalence. Since then, GoT has constructed a manufacturing plant for the biological larvicide used and has scaled up to several urban centres in 2019.
3.  My theoretical work to define universal coverage targets for long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) was widely discussed and adopted as global policy by WHO within 2 months of publication and by the US President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) later that year. Subsequent scale-up towards these universal coverage targets accounts for most of the >600 million malaria cases and 4 million malaria-related deaths averted in Africa over recent years. Unfortunately, public perceptions of the rationale for universal coverage have over the years drifted away from that originally envisaged and WHO policy has followed, so more recently I have had to re-engage with this debate to urge for accelerated market entry of new next generation LLINs with two or more active ingredients to mitigate and ideally contain insecticide resistance.
4.  My prior work evaluating the world’s first biological insecticide against adult mosquitoes, this work has also involved me in high-level debate about transgenic biologicals for insecticide resistance management.
5.  After many years of working on mosquito-proofed housing as a potentially scalable intervention , my latest observational evaluation of unplanned community-wide uptake in the Tanzanian city or Dar es Salaam documented unprecedented levels of impact upon malaria. Despite the complete absence of any deliberate promotion or subsidization, spontaneous scale up of window screens occurred rapidly and was associated with a 93% reduction of malaria prevalence . Also, despite the absence of any insecticide treatments for the simple netting window screens installed by residents of the city at their own expense, scale-up resulted in suppression of mosquito populations en masse, especially the most efficient malaria vector species which are most heavily-dependent upon human blood. This ground-breaking study was strongly endorsed in an editorial by WHO , and has helped stimulate investments in long-overdue operational research and large-scale trials.

DEVELOPMENT OF RESEARCH AND IMPLEMENTATION CAPACITY Overall, I have supervised 13 PhDs, 21 MScs and 9 postdoctoral researchers/fellows based at African institutions, the majority of whom have been Africans. Of the African applicants for Wellcome Trust (WT) fellowships whom I have sponsored and/or supervised, 8 out of 9 Masters and 3 out of 4 post-doctoral applicants have succeeded (11/13=85% success rate overall). My reputation as a supervisor and mentor is reflected in my standing role as a Facilitator at the annual Doctoral Supervisor’s Workshop of the Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa (CARTA). My track record at African and Caribbean institutes is as follows:
1.  At the International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) in Kenya (2000-2002), I found a large group of junior researchers already in place who lacked sufficient face-to-face academic support because of the isolated rural setting they were working in. I therefore dedicated myself to addressing that gap, by providing direct supervision and mentorship that led to 25 co-authored publications with mostly African lead authors. Several trainees went on to senior positions at ICIPE, the Kenya Medical Research Institute, IHI, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and University of Florida.
2.  In Tanzania (2003-present), I founded and led the Department of Environmental Health and Ecological Sciences (EHES) at IHI until 2012, when I handed over to a cadre of early-career African successors. This is the largest field-based malaria vector research group in Africa, and possibly the world. More than a dozen of our Tanzanian, Burundian and Kenyan postdoctoral scientists are now independently funded by Grand Challenges Canada, United States Agency for International Development, European Union, WT, BMGF, and World Health Organization (WHO).
3.  In Zambia (2007-present), I have collaborated extensively with the National Malaria Elimination Centre (NMEC), including supervising the PhDs of their operational research officer and lead entomologist, who has since been appointed Chief Regional Entomologist for the Elimination 8 countries of southern Africa. I also acted as sponsor and supervisor for a junior NMEC entomologists, who was awarded the first WT fellowship held by the Zambian MoH and has now completed his MSc and published two papers. As with IHI, the subcontracting mechanisms agreed with NMEC are consistent with the most stringent standards of the Council on Health Research and Development (COHRED) Fairness Index and most rigorous definition of system strengthening.
4.  Engagement in the global response to the Latin-American Zika pandemic took me to Haiti, where I established a collaboration with Université de Quisqueya (UQ) to evaluate our new outdoor personal protection measures against local mosquito vectors of Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya. Again, the sub-contracting mechanisms agreed with UQ were designed to achieve system strengthening, consistent with COHRED Fairness Index guidelines.
