The Short lab is excited to welcome new graduate student Nicki Joseph! Nicki graduated in 2021 with a B.S. in Biological Sciences and B.A. in German from University of Missouri Columbia. We are excited to have her!
Dom Magistrado won second place for her poster "Effect of nutrition on tolerance to infection in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes," and James Radl and Brendan Kelly help lead their Entomology Games team to a second place finish! Well done all!
Dr. Short went to Washington D.C. to take part in CFAES DC days. There she met with representatives from multiple federal funding agencies including the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
The Short lab joined the Meuti lab and the Infectious Diseases Institute to present a booth at COSI SciFest about tick borne pathogens and tick bite prevention. We had a great time and interacted with many community members, despite the rain!
