Welcome to our four thesis/summer students – Alex Hohmann, Nnenna Ibe, Alex Miller (all Princeton class of ’19), and Monica Nadeau (George Washington University)!

We are excited to announce the launch of PipPop – the Culex pipiens Population Genomics Project. Our goal is to better understand the evolutionary history of Culex pipiens, an important vector of West Nile Virus and lymphatic filariasis. Check out the project page and flyer for further details!

The McBride Lab was strongly represented at this year’s EEB sponsored Eno Mile – completing the race at a blistering pace. You make us proud!

Graduate student Luke Henry received a Lewontin Award from the Society for the Study of Evolution to pursue his work on insect microbiomes. Congrats Luke!

Graduate student Yuki Haba received a grant from the Pacific Southwest Center for Excellence in Vector Bourne Disease to fund his graduate work on Culex pipiens. Congrats Yuki!
