Roger and Jean Morrow Lecture: "Effects of Global Change on Vector-Borne Disease"
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location: Stipes 121
Description: Internationally recognized ecologist Brian Allan will deliver the annual Roger and Jean Morrow Lecture, "Effects of Global Change on Vector-Borne Disease." at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 4 in Stipes Hall, room 121.

In the Morrow Lecture, Allan will discuss multiple mechanisms of global change that are contributing to the emergence of vector-borne diseases, but also novel opportunities for their control.

Allan is a professor of Entomology and the associate director for Academic Affairs for the School of Integrative Biology at the University of Illinois. He is broadly interested in the ecology of infectious diseases, particularly diseases transmitted via the bite of an infected arthropod (e.g., ticks and mosquitoes) and has authored approximately 65 publications and multiple reports addressing these topics. He uses various tools in his research, including molecular technologies, remote sensing applications and theoretical modeling.
