Parasitologist to Speak April 17

PULLMAN, Wash. — Janice Moore, a parasitologist at Colorado State University, will speak on “The Roach, the Worm and the Rat” at 2:10 p.m., Friday, April 17, in Room T-101 of the Food Science and Human Nutrition Building on the Washington State University campus.

Moore’s research has focused on how parasites affect host behavior. She has published more than 40 refereed scientific publications, including articles in Scientific American, The American Naturalist and BioScience.

Her work on parasitology has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the World Health Organization, the Whitehall Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. She serves on the editorial boards of The Journal of Parasitology, BioScience and Invertebrate Zoology.

Moore is the second E. Paul Catts Memorial lecturer. Catts, a member of the WSU faculty from 1980 to 1992, taught medical entomology. He illustrated and co- authored the “Manual for Medical Entomology.” He died in 1996 following a heart attack.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Contact John Brown, professor and chair of the department of entomology at (509) 335-5505.
