Weighty problems like the threat of vector-borne disease require more than just entomological solutions, and students of insect science can be leaders in bringing together research from a variety of fields. One student shares his view on the potential collaborations that students could develop to mitigate the rise of tick-borne disease.
Meet entomologist Brooke Bissinger, Ph.D., who credits her success in time management, adaptability, and teamwork to her experience working in the food service industry before she became a scientist. Learn about the soft skills Bissinger gained in that work and how she applies it today as an entomologist in research and development.
Meet Kayla Perry, Ph.D., postdoctoral fellow at the Ohio State University, ground-beetle enthusiast, and subject of the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" series.
From the Bench to a Broader Impact: Traveling a Non-Traditional Path for Science to Benefit the World
Meet entomologist Shavonn R. Whiten, Ph.D., who translated her academic experience in vector-borne disease management into a career in public policy and international development. Learn what it takes to turn scientific training into real-world capacity building—and how Whiten made the leap.
A new research review finds communication between invasion ecologists and biological control experts tends to go one way, highlighting opportunities for invasion ecologists to benefit more from biocontrol publications and datasets.
