Dr. Charrisa de Bekker’s lab at UCF investigates the biology of zombie-making parasites and their hosts. More specifically, her lab studies how a fungal parasite changes the behavior of ants so the ants do exactly what the fungus needs to keep spreading. You can even find these so-called zombie ants in Central Florida! In her presentation, Dr. de Bekker will give you an idea of the research questions she is asking and what her day-to-day research looks like to answer those questions.
