CATCH THE BUZZ – BIG Change at USDA ‘ Bee Lab’

By November 2, 2020No Comments

Dr. Jay Evans will be handing over the Research Leader position for the USDA-ARS Bee Research Laboratory in November. He will return to his role as a Research Scientist focused on managing a variety of bee diseases. As Jay says, he did not sign up to be a lifer in this position but has thoroughly enjoyed the chance, through hiring and supervision over the past six years, to keep Beltsville as a leader in managing stress and disease in honey bees. He looks forward to more time to be a better scientist and collaborator, especially for large ongoing projects to identify and develop new, safe, bee disease treatments. Dr. Judy Chen, a longstanding Lab member and world expert on viruses and nosema (see interview in this issue of Bee Culture), will serve as Acting Research Leader for the Lab.
