Entomological Society of America names 2011 fellows
Date:7/6/2011

The ESA Governing Board has elected ten new Fellows of the Society for 2011. The election as a Fellow acknowledges outstanding contributions in one or more of the following: research, teaching, extension, or administration. The following Fellows will be recognized during Entomology 2011 -- ESA's 59th Annual Meeting -- which will be held November 13-16, 2011 in Reno, Nevada (see: http://www.entsoc.org/entomology2011).

Dr. Susan J. Brown, professor of biology at Kansas State University, is known internationally for her efforts to establish Tribolium castaneum, the red flour beetle, as a model organism for genetic studies of insect development. She received a B.A. in biology from Smith College and a Ph.D. in genetics from the University of Missouri - Columbia. She began studying homeotic genes in Tribolium to understand how they might control morphological diversity in insects. Before Brown began her studies, Tribolium had enjoyed a long history of use as a model organism for population genetic and ecology studies. Although several homeotic mutants existed, they had not been analyzed in great detail. Her work on homeotic genes demonstrated the power of genetic and molecular analysis in a non-drosophilid insect and contributed to our understanding of how Hox genes function in insects to repress anterior fates while also directing segment- and species-specific characteristics. To understand how short-germ insects produce segments sequentially during embryogenesis, Brown also studies segmentation genes in Tribolium. Her research group has described a novel regulatory circuit of pair-rule gene interactions that defines segments reiteratively. Further studies determined how the output of this circuit regulates segment-polarity genes to produce segments sequentially. Brown's current studies focus on the role of Wnt signaling in A-P axis patterning and regulation of the pair-rule gene circuit. Brown has c
