rometry as a tool for analysis of lipids, particularly to plant biologists.

Welti's research has appeared in more than 100 publications. Her work has been funded by agencies such as the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Her current work is aimed at determining the role of lipid oxidation in the response of plants to environmental stresses such as temperature changes and exposure to pathogens. Welti received the Kansas Technology Enterprise Corporation Scholar award in 2006 and the Outstanding Senior Scientist Award from the Kansas State University chapter of Sigma Xi in 2008.

Welti serves on five journal editorial boards, including the board of the Journal of Biological Chemistry. She has mentored five graduate students, 66 undergraduate students and eight postdoctoral researchers in her research group.

* Zhu knows insects from the inside out. His research specialties are insect toxicology and molecular biology. He researches how pesticides kill insects and how insects respond to pesticides at a cellular and molecular level. His research is to help control insect pests safely, effectively and sustainably.

His research encompasses biosynthesis and metabolism of chitin, a vital component of insect exoskeletons and other body parts, Bt toxin and insect gut interactions,functions of insect acetylcholinesterases, mechanisms of insecticideresistance, toxicogenomics of pesticides and gene silencing-based insect control methods. He has a patent pending for double-stranded RNA-based nanoparticles for insect gene silencing.

Zhu has written more than 130 journal articles, books and book chapters. He is a member of select professional societies, including the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Chemical Society, Entomological Society of America, Gamma Sigma Delta, Honor Society of Agriculture Sigma Xi, Scientific Research Society and the Overseas Chinese Entomologi
