Center Evaluator: Otto Doering, Agricultural Economics, Purdue University
On the basis that economic losses resulting from arthropod-mediated damage and disease are second only to losses resulting from natural disasters, we are working to streamline the efforts of industry and academia toward management of arthropod pests through a unique center: We partnered with NSF and industry for formal establishment in 2013 of a National Science Foundation Industry / University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC), the Center for Arthropod Management Technologies.
