Biology of Ticks and Other Tick-Borne Diseases

Speaker: Dr. Daniel Sonenshine, Professor Emeritus, Old Dominion University; Laboratory of Malaria and Vector Research, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIH)

Deer tick questing Dr. Rich will host Dr. Daniel Sonenshine, preeminent tick biologist who quite literally wrote the book on ticks (Biology of Ticks in two volumes, co-authored with Dr. R. Michael Roe).  Dr. Sonenshine’s research interest in ticks precedes the discovery of Lyme disease in North America and he is thus uniquely qualified to provide a historical context for this public health challenge. 

This is part of a FREE live webinar series presented noon to 1:00 pm on the 2nd Wednesday of the month in 2020. Preregistration is required to access the webinars.
