October meeting: Dr. Hongmei Ly-Byarlay of NCSU shares her research

Join us as Dr. Hongmei Ly-Byarlay, a National Research Council research fellow at the Apiculture Program at NC State University, shares insights from he research on oxidative stress, longevity, and stress resistance in honey bees in several different environmental conditions.  A Ph.D. recipient from Purdue University, she has given many talks to beekeepers and the general public in the midwest and enjoys helping the public and children learn more awesome bee facts!

Dr. Ly-Byarlay’s current research focuses on the mechanisms of biotic and abiotic stressors in honey bee development, and how different stressors impact the genetic and epigenetic architecture of honey bees.  In Tuesday’s presentation, she will discuss her recent study on aggression behavior, and whether oxidative stress occurs when bees are under artificial migration conditions.

Please note that the October meeting will be held in the Parish Life Center of the Church of the Good Shepherd on Hillsborough Street in downtown Raleigh.  Free parking is available in the lot across the street from the church.
