Research Interests / Job description
The lab's focus is the biology of honey bees and bumble bees.
Bees are the most important pollinators in agriculture and give pollination services to many other crops.
Our research projects are on bees' pathogens, mainly viruses, the bees' endocrine system, and the interaction between hormones and pathogens. We also study the relationship between pathogens and the behavior of the bees.
We use a multilevel approach to understand the mechanism of pathogens' interaction with bees at the colony, group, individual, cell, and gene levels. We analyze our findings at the proximate mechanistic and ultimate levels to understand our conclusions from an evolutionary perspective. The research goals are also applicative with the target of developing new approaches for the protection of honey bees from diseases.
