Global Reach

Rutger’s motto of “Jersey Roots, Global Reach” will be exemplified by a series of lectures to be given in Iran by Professor Randy Gaugler and Dr. Ari Faraji. On the 24th of May, the two travel to the capital of Iran and the University of Tehran’s medical school and the Department of Medical Entomology to present several lectures on new technology and frontiers in mosquito and nematode research.  They will also travel to lecture at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad and later to Shiraz University in the town of the same name.

In reciprocity, the Center for Vector Biology welcomes the new addition of a visiting graduate student from Iran, Hana Allahverdi. Hana will be studying “zombie mosquitoes,” a topic to be further discussed in a future
