McNulty Fellow Amelia Brown ’18 publishes article in online Drosophilia Information Service

McNulty Fellow Amelia Brown ’18 (Biology) is a co-author on a paper published in the December 2017 edition of Drosophilia Information Service entitled “The use of 3D printing to facilitate Drosophilia behavior research.”  Specifically the paper highlights how consumer-level 3D printers and design software are supporting research in D. suzukii’s feeding preferences and ability to act as vectors for nematode dispersal.   This research was done under the guidance of several professors in the Biology Department, including Dr. Jonathan Fingerut, Professor and Director of Environmental Science and Sustainability Studies; Dr. Matt Nelson, Assistant Professor and Director of the Animal Studies Program; and Dr. Scott McRobert, Professor.
