Our students are gearing up for the fall semester and we’re excited to learn about the cutting edge research they’ll be diving into this year alongside our professors. We’re accustomed to their work garnering international attention — like the gypsy moth research paper Nana Banahene, ’18, coauthored during her senior year that has received a 2019 journal award from the Royal Entomological Society.

Banahene worked with biology professor Kristine Grayson, research scientist Lily Thompson, and colleagues at Virginia Commonwealth University. Their paper is the best-in-show for this year and their award is being presented at the Royal Entomological Society’s International Symposium & Annual National Science Meeting in London.

Congratulations, Nana and team! We’re proud of your impressive work.
