March 2014

  • Congrats to Andrew for being selected for the NSF GROW (Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide) with USAID program.  Andrew will be spending the summer in Indonesia to hunt emerging mosquito-borne arboviruses!
  • Rachel was awarded the #1 Student Poster Award at the 2014 American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges conference in March in Alexandria, VA!  Rachel's poster was entitled 'Merging ecology and epidemiology to reduce the burden of human and canine Chagas disease: a One Health approach'.  The poster was a great contribution to this year's meeting, which had the theme of One Health in Veterinary Medical Education.  We are thrilled that Texas A&M University was well represented at this year's conference, and that Dean Green was present for Rachel's presentation.

  • The Hamer Labs were well represented at this year's Ecological Integration Symposium, hosted by the Interdisciplinary Program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Rachel, Andrew, Jaime, and Emily all delivered awesome oral presentations, and Adrian Castellanos (Jessica Light's Lab) was awarded yet another #1 Graduate Poster Presentation Award for his awesome poster on the fire ant - tick - pathogen project.  Way to go, team!!
  • DVM Summer Research Student Trevor Tenney (summer 2013) had his manuscript on canine Chagas disease accepted for publication in Emerging Infectious Diseases!  Congrats to Trevor and coauthors Rachel, Dr. Snowden, and Sarah for our lab's first peer-reviewed Chagas publication, hopefully followed by many more.
  • Congrats to Erica for being accepted to TAMU Vet School!  We're glad you'll be around... hopefully you can keep working with us!
  • Emily delivered an awesome oral presentation to the Vector Biology group entitled 'Using stable isotopes as a marker for mosquito movement'.  Many members of Gabe and Sarah's labs were present to cheer her on!
