Research Support Units

icipe's solid foundation in insect science is underpinned by the science disciplines of chemical ecology, molecular biology and biotechnology, insect pathology, taxonomy and systematics, ecology, biostatistics and bioinformatics, geo information system and social sciences.

These skills are applied across the four research themes of Human Health, Animal Health, Plant Health and Environmental Health, and are executed through the Centre's Research Support Units, which perform a range of functions.
