Common bee virus causes bees to forage prematurely
Honey bee pollination contributes roughly $15 billion to the U.S. agricultural industry each year, but diseases like deformed wing virus (DWV) can devastate bee health.  DWV is the most prevalent virus responsible for honey bee colony losses. It often causes infected bees to forage prematurely, which can cause diminished spatial memory and colony failure.

A chemist investigates how proteins assume their shape
A chemist investigates how proteins assume their shape
Matt Shoulders hopes to shed light on diseases linked to flawed protein folding. When proteins are first made in our cells, they often exist as floppy chains until specialized cellular machinery helps them fold into the right shapes. Only after achieving this correct structure can most proteins perform their biological functions.
