Arthropod Vector Biology
We explore the genetic basis of vector competence in beetles, aphids, mosquitoes and ticks.
We have numerous ongoing studies exploring how microorganisms alter their host animal or plant.
Integrative Pest Management
From wireworms to aphids to potato beetles, we aim to improve IPM strategies and approaches in Manitoba.
Disease Diagnostic Tools
We develop cutting-edge tools aimed at early detection of plant diseases.
DEET Mode of Action
DEET is far and away the most used repellent globally, yet its mode of action is still not well understood. We have projects aimed at elucidating this.
