Welcome to the web site for the laboratory of Dr. Dawn Wesson. The laboratory broadly focuses on arthropod-borne, tropical pathogens. Recently, this has taken the form of surveillance of local populations of Triatoma sanguisuga, deployment of a novel lethal ovitrap for container breeding Aedes mosquito species, and mathematical modeling of mosquito species' distributions and the associated risks of disease transmission to humans.
