July 2013

  • Mosquito Crew is taking over College Station, with Emily in the lead.IMG_2016
  • Congrats to Jaime Rodriguez for being awarded the Willie May Harris Fellowship for Outstanding Graduating Teaching Assistant from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.  Jaime was nominated by Dr. Jessica Light based on his teaching in the mammalogy class.  Although this award provides funding so that Jaime will not need to teach this fall, he's going to teach anyways, because he loves it so much.  We are also thrilled that Jaime already has 3 med school interviews lined up this summer!
  • Good news for internal funding this month:
    • Texas AgriLife has funded our research to explore interactions among invasive fire ants, ticks, tick-borne pathogens, and small mammals!  Dr. Jessica Light lead this proposal, with Sarah, Gabe, and other collaborators from WFSC and ENTO on board.
    • We just learned that we have been awarded a seed grant for our proposal to explore Chagas disease ecology and epidemiology across a transnational gradient. This funding is from the Texas A&M University-CONACYT: Collaborative Research Grant Program.  We are so excited to build new collaborations with investigators from Instituto Politécnico Nacional in Mexico.
  • Rachel, Miranda, Gabe, and Sarah all presented at the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists meeting in Chicago.  Great Job, Miranda and Rachel, on your first national oral presentations of your dissertation research!  And a big congrats to Rachel for being awarded the #1 Student Presentation Award!  You can read more here about this honor on the VIBS website.Rachel AAVP award
