The NDSU Department of Biological Sciences is set to host a faculty tenure presentation by Kendra Greenlee,associate professor and chair of biological sciences. Greenlee is scheduled to present “Beneficial Effects of Fluctuating Thermal Regimes: Increasing Insect Survival of Low Temperature Stress”on Friday, Aug. 31,at 3 p.m. in Loftsgard 114.
Everyone is welcome.
Greenlee’s laboratory conducts research on the respiratory physiology of insects. Researchers use respirometry and synchrotron x-ray imaging to study the gas exchange in developing caterpillars and immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry and western blotting is used to investigate proteins involved in responses to hypoxia, infection and injury.
