Dr. Frydman's research featured Internationally.

10/21/2011

Dr. Horacio Frydman lab's research on how the Wolbachia bacteria manipulates insect reproduction was published ahead of print in the journal, Science, and later picked up by the popular press on both national and international levels, including USA Today, The Scientist, BioTechniques, Le Nouvel Observateur (French journal), the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Russian International News Agency, and Spectrum (German news service) and Galileo (Italian science news journal).  Assistant Professor Horacio Frydman, graduate student Eva Fast and colleagues have provided new clues to the mystery as to how the bacteria interfere with their hosts.  This new knowledge may prove helpful in tackling human diseases that are carried by insects and parasitic worms.
