Baylor University Associate Professor of Biology, Cheolho Sim.

Mosquitoes are massive agents of the spread of diseases like malaria and the West Nile virus around the world.  Cheolho Sim, associate professor of biology, has dedicated his research towards suppressing mosquito populations and slowing the spread of disease, recently earning a grant from the National Science Foundation to advance those efforts. In this Baylor Connections, Sim shares how genomic research into a mosquito’s circadian rhythm could be key to slowing the spread of disease, and examines how his lab lives out its motto, “driven by science, guided by compassion.”
