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.
