Dr. Gideon Wasserberg

Dr. Gideon Wasserberg (Biology) received a third-year continuation of his RO1 award from the National Institute of Health (NIH) for his project “Oviposition attractants for surveillance and control of sand flies, vectors of Leishmania.”

By applying an ecologically based approach, Dr. Wasserberg seeks to identify weak links in the life-cycle of the pathogen and target these with precision and efficacy in order to break the transmission cycle between phlebotomine sand flies and humans.
