Dave Denlinger wins 2012 Distinguished Senior Faculty Research Award

May 3, 2012

David Denlinger was named winner of the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center's 2012 Distinguished Senior Faculty Research Award. Among his achievements, Denlinger is widely recognized for his research on the physiological and molecular mechanisms regulating insect cold hardiness and dormancy, or diapause, and for his pioneering work on the regulation of reproduction in the tsetse fly, which transmits human disease. He is currently studying how the Antarctic midge Belgica antarctica survives extreme conditions and is working with colleagues to sequence the insect's genome, the first-ever sequencing project for a polar organism.
