Participants

Participation in the Insect Genetic Technologies Research Coordination Network is open to students (undergraduate and graduate), postdoctoral researchers, technical and scientific staff and independent investigators with an interest in insect science, genomics and genetic technologies. Knowledge of and/or expertise with insect genetic technologies is not required to participate in this network. In fact, those without specific knowledge of insect genetic technologies are especially encouraged to participate so that a broader understanding and application of these technologies can be developed.

As a participant you will be able to fully interact and access the resources on this site. You will be able to find experts interested in technologies or insect systems you are interested in, find consultants or collaborators and submit content to this site in the form of ‘posts’ to Technology Topics, Knowledgebase, Network Announcements and Activities.

I focus on understanding of the complexity of microbe-host interactions applying system biology approaches to provide the scientific basis for the development of novel bio-strategies and designing of bio-processes of products of a wide spectrum of interest in bio-industry. Fundamental/Applied Research Lines; - Detection of pathogen signals in complex biological samples using well established model organisms (in Human, Drosophila, Tsetse, Mosquito. - Manipulation of the host (vector) microbiota to block transmission of pathogens.

My research focused on the molecular mechanisms under insect oogenesis, specifically which and how signaling pathways are involved in cell proliferation, differentiation and cell death during ovary maturation. I am currently work on the role of Hippo signaling pathway during ovarian and embryo development in earwigs.
