News from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at NC State
CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

A large-scale water quality project in New Bern, designed NC State’s Dept. of Biological & Agriculture Engineering (BAE), received national recognition for its construction. Cape Fear Precast LLC of Jacksonville was awarded second place for a local project in the National Precast Concrete Association’s Creative Use of Precast (CUP) Awards in January.

 

The Jack Smith Creek Stormwater Project, one of the largest stormwater retrofits in NC, was designed by Cooperative Extension’s BAE Stormwater Group in CALS and involved the construction of a stormwater wetland to capture and treat runoff from a large watershed in New Bern. The innovative project can capture and treat the runoff from more than 1,000 acres of residential and commercial property.

Ponnusamy wins ESA award | http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/entomology/

Ponnusamy wins ESA award | http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/entomology/ | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it


Senior Researcher in Entomology, Longanathan (Logu) Ponnasamy, wins the prestigious Entomological Society of America Early Career Innovation Award for his research.

 

"Logu was recognized for his recent research on molecular microbial ecology of bacterial populations in mosquito habitats, microbe-insect interactions, and oviposition site attractants of mosquitoes, in collaboration with the Apperson and Schal labs. He helped develop a novel attract-and-kill management strategy for Aedes aegypti, using attractive bacteria in a sustained release formulation that attracts gravid females to lethal trap. He is also the principal investigator on an NIH R21 (exploratory) grant to identify bacterial factors that stimulate Aedes aegypti eggs to hatch."
