Mosquitoes kill more humans every year than any other any other animal, including people. Distinguished Professor Dr. Craig Montell of the Department of Molecular, Cellular, & Developmental Biology at University of California, Santa Barbara will demonstrate how working on the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster provided insights into new strategies for mosquito control that would not otherwise be possible.
