HPU Biology student reviews mosquito protein

Gina Botsko (B.S. Biology: HPU 2018), Assistant Professor of Biology, Jackson T. Sparks, and collaborators from the University of Richmond and Louisiana State University published a review titled: “Membrane proteins mediating reception and transduction in chemosensory neurons in mosquitoes” in Frontiers in Physiology on Sept. 20, 2018.  Dr. Sparks and HPU undergraduate researchers want to identify molecular targets for the disruption of disease-spreading biting behaviors.  The full text featuring the accompanying image can be found here.
