POSTER PRESENTATION AWARD
Incheon National University, Republic of Korea
During the Digital Olfaction 2018 Meeting, Sooho Lim from Incheon National University was awarded a Poster presentation award for his team’s excellent presentation entitled “Essential Olfactory Receptors In Stylet of the Major Disease Vector, Aedes Aegypti”.
which in turn indicates that olfactory perception in the stylet is necessary and sufficient for mosquitoes to find host blood in order to rapidly acquire blood meals from a host animal.
In addition, we found active ligand binding sites of these olfactory receptors through structural studies.
We had a great time to freely discuss and share knowledge with many people. Listening to presentations and talking to many people with different perspectives on olfaction was a very good opportunity for us studying insects.
