Welcome to the Bernhardt Lab at Utah State University Department of Biology

Arthropod vectors significantly impact human disease in the United States and throughout the world.  The Bernhardt lab is a medical entomology lab that focuses on ways to reduce arthropod-borne infectious disease transmission to humans.  My research uses an integrative approach to examine mechanisms within the arthropod vector to understand disease transmission, as well as insecticide resistance.  Graduate and undergraduate students use field collections, molecular biology, animal models, epidemiology, and population genetics to address research hypotheses.  We currently have experiments being conducted using mosquitoes, sand flies, fleas, and tick arthropod models. 
The end goal of the Bernhardt lab is to apply basic and applied research experimentation to address public health concerns.
