Field-to-Lab Malaria Research: An Interview with Rebekah Kent

In the village of Lupata, Zambia, Rebekah Kent collects mosquitoes that she will later examine in the lab to determine the extent of the malaria parasite's reach in the area. Few entomological studies have been done there so "everything we are finding out is relatively new, which makes it very exciting," says Kent. During this January 2006 interview, she was a doctoral student at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Kent is now a postdoctoral investigator with the CDC. She is interviewed by Brian W. Simpson, editor of Johns Hopkins Public Health magazine.
