Bernard A. Okech

Faculty: B Okech Bernard Okech is a research assistant scientist in the Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience.

Research Interests:

My research goal is focused on finding environmentally safe ways to kill the vectors of disease. To achieve this goal, I study in detail, the biological processes occurring in the insect midgut after ingestion of food and how they affect mosquito survival. Understanding these processes may help in finding new techniques and tools offering the potential to reduce disease vector populations and/or prevent pathogen transmission without harming the environment.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
