Hollis Woodard wins National Science Foundation CAREER Award

By Holly Ober |

Bumblebee queens start off as solitary insects, looking for a place to nest. After finding a spot, the queen lays eggs and collects food to feed the brood. This continues until the first group of workers hatch and take over the queen’s food gathering and feeding duties. Woodard’s group will do experiments to find out whether there are genes that regulate key moments in the life of queens as they find their nests.
