Kelsey investigates the impact of insecticide resistance on the Anopheles mosquito mating behavior and malaria vectorial capacity.
Emre investigates the role of Juvenile Hormone in mediating mosquito tissue development during the adult post-eclosion phase. He is interested in understanding how the mosquito maturation process impacts reproduction, immunity and behavioral processes for the advancement of a novel mosquito control tool.
Federico’s research focuses on the discovery of new anti-malarial drugs and new malaria transmission blocking interventions.
Kaileigh works for the Harvard Chan Arthropod Containment Facility and maintains core mosquito colonies for research purposes.
Jack provides experimental assistance to different research projects taking place in the laboratory.
Elaine is interested in studying how the mosquito microbiome can affect Anopheles vector competence and fecundity.
Laura de Vries
Laura studies the interactions of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum and its Anopheles mosquito host regarding nutrient uptake and metabolism.
Esrah is interested in studying the basic biology of mosquito stage Plasmodium falciparum in order to identify novel targets that inhibit parasite development.
Oleksandr holds positions at the Volodymyr Vynnychenko Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University and the Institute of Veterinary Medicine of the National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine. He has extensive teaching and research experience in the ecology of infectious pathogens, and will apply his expertise to the study of human malaria parasites while in the Catteruccia Laboratory.
Maurice researches the impact of the nutrient metabolism of Anopheles mosquitoes on the epidemiology of malaria transmission.
BlakeLee provides administrative assistance and support to Prof. Catteruccia and her lab. She also acts as a liaison between Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Harvard T.H. Chan School.
Jamie provides experimental assistance to different research projects taking place in the laboratory.
Malhar is interested in studying the transition of Plasmodium falciparum parasites from the mosquito to the human host and investigating the liver stage biology of the parasite in vitro.
Emily provides managerial support to the research performed in the laboratory.
Doug is an entomologist and parasitologist working on the interaction of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum with its mosquito vector Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto. His current focus is developing new malaria transmission-blocking interventions.
