Dr. Aaron Gross

Associate Professor
Department of Entomology

Molecular physiology and toxicology

The goal of my research program is to identify new physiological targets that can be used to develop insecticides that control arthropods that impact human and animal health along with agriculture, to investigate the reasons why pesticides lose their efficacy in the field (molecular mechanisms of resistance), but also to understand the dynamic interaction that occurs between arthropod pests and their hosts for the development of novel intervention strategies.
