BECOME PART OF OUR TEAM
The Prokopec Lab is composed of individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences, all with a common goal at the intersection of disease ecology research and public health activism.
Humans have a strong, complex relationship with disease vectors, and we believe it is necessary to account for the ways in which anthropogenic activities and environmental conditions impact transmission dynamics. We seek to use an eco-epidemiological approach, including experimentation and careful consideration of biological processes, to investigate the complexities of human-vector-pathogen dynamics and provide meaningful data to disease prevention strategies.
We believe that remarkable ideas can come from anywhere. Our goal is to foster an inclusive, fun, and intellectually rigorous environment that will help everyone to develop and apply those ideas. We recognize that we seek the difficult task of understanding our relationship with vectors, pathogens, and the environment. It is only through meticulous trial and error and collaborative thought and discussion that we will be able to tackle these problems presented by a rapidly urbanizing world.
