"Oxitec is committed to deliver solutions that enable sustainable food production for a growing population on this changing planet, which is needed now more than ever to protect global food security.

"We’re excited to be part of this collaborative effort to develop the world’s most sustainable tick management solution. I’m delighted that the results of our early scientific feasibility program have demonstrated the promise of our Friendly™ platform, to deliver impact against the world’s most devastating tick pest of cattle. We’re grateful for the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which will enable us to – in collaboration with the globally respected Roslin Institute – start to build an urgently needed Friendly™ tick solution to support livestock farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond."Kelly Matzen, Chief Technology Officer, Oxitec
