Hampton Park Meeting Room

Sure, mosquitos pester us all summer long; but, have you ever considered that there might be an organism out there pestering the mosquitos?


Discover the fascinating world of mosquitos and microbes in North Georgia as Evan Lampert, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Biology at the University of North Georgia, and his students explain how their research on Wolbachia, a bacterium that infects mosquitoes and other insects, has the potential to minimize the use of pesticides and reduce the transmission of mosquito-borne diseases.


This guest lecture is part of the Bugs, Brains, and the Big Bang for Busy Adults series.
