Angela Douglas

Douglas is an expert on animal-microbial symbioses and nutritional physiology. She joined Cornell University in 2008 as the Daljit S. and Elaine Sarkaria Professor of Insect Physiology and Toxicology. The three current research foci in her laboratory are: Drosophila-gut microbe interactions, metabolic coevolution in cooperative symbioses, novel targets for insect pest control. Douglas’ lab investigates the interactions between animals and beneficial microbes as a biomedical model for human health and a novel target for insect pest control.
