AMCOP 70 Eastern Illinois University

The Orlofske Lab participated in this year’s Annual Midwestern Conference of Parasitologists. Dr. Orlofske served as the Presiding Officer, gave a presentation about using parasites in inquiry based laboratories and case studies to enhance undergraduate courses across the curriculum, and presented Grant Gagliardi and Alex Coomb’s award -winning CNR Symposium Poster because they were unable to attend the meeting. Fiona Georgousi presented a poster of her preliminary research on the diversity of trematode larval stages in Midwestern Wetlands. Jake Shurba also joined us at the conference. We had a great time meeting and networking with other parasitologists in the region and enjoyed all the presentations, symposium and keynote speakers.

Here are some photos from the Poster Session:
