I’ve been at CDC for 14 years. I work for the Division of Vector-Borne Diseases in Fort Collins, Colorado. I’m a Research Entomologist. I study mosquitoes and the best way to control them, including the impact of insecticide resistance.
CDC laboratories routinely work with some of the most deadly germs in the world – identifying health threats and conducting vital public health research. CDC constantly develops and reviews extensive laboratory guidelines and procedures to protect both the public and laboratory workers.
