What have we been up to? (JAN 2016)
The beginning of a new year always brings reflection about the previous. We’ve had another successful year, with seven peer-reviewed publications and 13 presentations at scientific meetings. We had 15 active grants totaling $1.8M, and we have more people in the program than ever. We have been joined by a new postdoc, Dr. Parry Keitzman, from the University of California at Riverside, and Erin McDermott and Hannah Levenson have both joined us as temporary research technicians in the lab and field, respectively. Mike Simone-Finstrom landed a prime research position at the USDA Baton Rouge lab last fall, and our long-time Genetics Technician Margie Gurganus left the lab to attend veterinary school—their presence and collegiality will be sorely missed. On the extension side, collectively we delivered ~25 presentations and workshops to various beekeeper groups for ~4,700 individual contacts, and we were covered by 11 media stories on our work. New courses on our BEES network continue to be on hold until the migration to the DELTA server is finalized (see page 2), but we hope it will once again gain some traction. Overall, 2015 was a great year, and we hope the same for 2016!
