About the Project

Our research program combines biochemistry, physiology and molecular biology to address fundamental questions in insect biology. We are interested in understanding mosquito’s physiological processes such as activity of the endocrine system and hormonal regulation of gene expression; my research has been funded by NIH’s RO1s for more than 15 years. Currently, the main focus of our research program is the study of the nutritional regulation of synthesis of juvenile hormone, a molecule that regulates development, reproduction and behavior in the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the vector of Dengue and Yellow fever.
