Dr. Amiri

At our April meeting we will be joined by Dr. Esmaeil Amiri. Dr. Amiri is a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Olav Rueppell’s lab at UNC-Greensboro. He will discuss his research emphasis on queen bee health focusing on the transmission of viruses from workers and drones to queens and the resultant effect on the health of the colony including subsequent generations of queens.

Dr. Amiri earned his doctoral degree at Aarhus University in Denmark and has presented his research findings to Danish beekeepers and queen breeders.
