It is our great pleasure to tell you that the Fisher Prize Committee of the SSE has selected Megan Greischar as this year's Fisher Prize winner for her paper, "Predicting optimal transmission investment in malaria parasites.”

This page provides information on program requirements and a listing of the items that a future graduate student must complete to apply to the entomology department.

This page contains listing of questions and answers commonly asked by our prospective graduate students.

esearchers at Penn State have received more than $1 million in first-year funding from the National Institutes of Health to investigate malaria transmission in Southeast Asia with a goal of working toward the disease's elimination in the region. They will receive up to approximately $9 million over seven years for this project.

For animals that hibernate, making it to spring is no small feat. Torpor — the state of reduced bodily activity that occurs during hibernation — is not restful.

Entomologists Dr. Christina Grozinger and Dr. John Tooker are tonight’s speakers at Science On Tap, sponsored by the PSU Science Policy Society. It takes place at 7 pm at Liberty Craft House. Grozinger and Tooker joined Karly Regan on the Mixtape to talk about saving pollinators and reducing pesticide use.
