Two graduate students in the lab recently received awards for their research. Eric Smith was awarded honorable mention for his oral presentation on Anopheles resistance to malaria at the GGB graduate student symposium. Also, James Ricci recently participated in the Entomology Student Seminar Day and received second place for his poster on the genetic basis of resistance to DEET in Anopheles. Previously, James received first place for his oral presentation on the same subject at the 2014 American Mosquito Control Association meeting.
Adding to the string of recent successes, Raissa Green's abstract was selected from a large number of submissions to give an oral presentation at the Arthropod Genomics conference this past summer.
