Lyric Bartholomay (Director) is a vector biologist with interest in disease agents that include nematode parasites and arboviruses. She and her lab are studying mosquito-pathogen interactions with an emphasis on innate immunity in the mosquito host and are working to translate that knowledge into novel mosquito control methods. They are also interested in understanding when and where mosquitoes are present across the Midwest, and which of those mosquitoes present a risk to human and animal health. She teaches parasitology at UW. She’s also part of the Urban Ecosystem Project at Iowa State University where she is part of a team that teaches mosquito biology to elementary students and their families.
