Aggie women in Entomology hosted Dr. Gro Amdam for the Department of Entomology’s Spring semester. Dr. Amdam has a joint position at Arizona State University and at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. Dr. Gro Amdam is known internationally for her research on behavior and aging in honey bees. Her lab uses the honey bee to investigate social structure and how social behavior has evolved. She has expended her research to include gerontology, neurobiology and immunology. Her talk entitled “Vaccinating Honey Bees: Concept, Data, Feasibility” focused on her research. The AWE had the opportunity to talk more about women in academia over breakfast. Thank you Dr. Amdam for your excellent visit!
