The Eliminate Dengue research program is a not-for-profit international collaboration led by Professor Scott O'Neill that brings together scientific collaborators from around the world with a range of skills and experience including; Wolbachia genetics, mosquito biology and ecology, dengue epidemiology and control, and health education and promotion.

Scott O'Neill, dean of science at Monash University and head of an international Wolbachia research collaboration called Eliminate Dengue, has been releasing Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes in Australia for the past four years and is also conducting releases in Vietnam, Indonesia and Brazil (see related Scientific American story). But in those cases O'Neill is not trying to wipe out the mosquito population. Instead, he releases mosquitoes of both sexes that are infected with the bug (thus the eggs will still hatch as normal but will harbor Wolbachia inside them). His hope is actually to establish the bacterium among many generations of mosquitoes in the wild because his Wolbachia plan hinges on another biological quirk of the bacterium-it limits mosquitoes' ability to pass on dengue.

The fastest-moving project is that of Scott O'Neill, a biologist at the University of Queensland, Australia.
Five years ago, Dr. O'Neill got $7 million to try to infect mosquitoes with a strain of wolbachia bacteria that didn't kill mosquitoes outright, but made them die before they got old.
The advantage is that a female must be "middle-aged" - about 14 days - before she can pick up the dengue fever virus from one human, see it mature in her gut and then pass it on to another human. If she lives long enough to take one blood meal and lay eggs, she never transmits dengue, but the bacteria is under no Darwinian pressure to disappear from the mosquito population. Also, she passes it to her embryos, so they too lead shortened lives.
