Research Group: Insect Pathology and Biological Control
Insects and mites are subject to infectious diseases which can seriously affect host fitness. We study fundamental and applied aspects of insect pathology.
The fundamental aspects range from studies on diversity and phylogenetics, evolution of infection processes and host defence mechanisms to the ecology and life cycles of insect pathogens.
The applied aspects of insect pathology are twofold: 1) developing insect pathogens as biological control agents of pest insects and mites to provide sustainable solutions for pest control, and 2) prevention of diseases in beneficial insects such as honey bees, other pollinators, predators and insects used for food and feed.
