UC Riverside entomologist receives international honor for chemical ecology contributions
Date:7/21/2014

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Jocelyn Millar, a professor of entomology and cooperating faculty member in the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Riverside, has been awarded the Silver Medal for career achievement by the International Society of Chemical Ecology (ISCE).

Awarded first in 1986, the ISCE Silver Medal is the society's highest honor. It is awarded annually to scientists who have made outstanding contributions to chemical ecology, the study of chemicals that mediate interactions between living organisms.

Millar is the second person at UC Riverside to receive the medal; in 2009, Ring Card received the honor.

"This is fantastic news and very well-deserved recognition for Dr. Millar," said Rick Redak, chair of the Department of Entomology. "The Silver Medal award is testimony to his outstanding competence and a lifetime of accomplishment within the area of chemical ecology. This award not only honors Jocelyn but also is a testament to the department's strength in chemical ecology and behavior. We are privileged and lucky to have Dr. Millar as part of our team."

Millar's research primarily focuses on how insects use odors and tastes for communication. Nearly all types of insects use chemical signals for a wide variety of functions such as communicating location, species, sex, reproductive status, and alarm. Millar's research group identifies these signals and determines their functional roles. His research team
