Tony Nolan was part of the team that developed the first ever genetic transformation technology for a malaria mosquito. His interests lie in the biology of reproduction and sexual development in the mosquito and in using this understanding to develop novel genetic tools for vector control that can augment existing technologies. He recently led research that culminated in the first ever demonstration of a gene drive with the potential to cause suppression of mosquito populations through the use of site-specific nucleases that can spread in a population and target essential genes in the mosquito.
