Keeping the world’s people and food supply safe from pests and disease.

In the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology, we are discovering safer and healthier ways to protect our food, health, resources and homes from a variety of threats, such as pests and disease. And we do this while also protecting our natural ecosystems, which insects, bacteria and microorganisms are essential to maintaining. Our work promotes public health, supplies more plentiful food and builds a better quality of life for people in urban and rural areas.
