Sylvie Manguin is a Full Research Professor at the Institute of Research for Development (IRD), based at the University of Montpellier, France. She is a leading medical entomologist and academician researcher whose main interest concerns mosquitoes and vector-borne diseases such as malaria and dengue. She has developed studies on Anopheles mosquitoes from three continents (Asia, Africa, Americas) including molecular species identification, population genetics, phylogenetic, vectorial capacities, spatial surveillance, midgut microbiota biodiversity, salivary immunological markers and vector control approaches. She is the author of 90 indexed publications, six book chapters, three books including “Anopheles mosquitoes: New insights into malaria vectors” for which she is the Editor (InTech Open Access) and “Biodiversity of malaria in the World” (John Libbey Ed.), respectively published in 2013 and 2008. She is also the Secretary General of the International Federation of Tropical Medicine (IFTM), member of the Editorial Boards of the Malaria Journal and Acta Tropica and she serves as reviewer in several international institutions and more than 20 scientific journals.

Towards Malaria Elimination - A Leap Forward was started to mark the occasion for renewed commitment to end malaria transmission for good (the WHO's call for "Malaria Free World" by 2030). This book is dedicated for the benefit of researchers, scientists, program and policy managers, students and anyone interested in malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases with the goal of sharing recent information on success stories, innovative control approaches and challenges in different regions of the world. Some main issues that emerged included multidrug-resistant malaria and pandemic risk, vaccines, cross-border malaria, asymptomatic parasite reservoir, the threat of Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium knowlesi, insecticide resistance in Anopheles vectors and outdoor malaria transmission. This book is one little step forward to bring together in 17 chapters the experiences of malaria-expert researchers from five continents to present updated information on disease epidemiology and control at the national/regional level, highlighting the constraints, challenges, accomplishments and prospects of malaria elimination.
