Kaylee’s research in the Laboratory of Tropical Genetics focuses on the molecular basis for mosquito attraction to humans. Mosquito-borne diseases annually account for over one million deaths worldwide. She hopes to connect what makes some people more attractive to mosquitoes than others with the variability of each person’s skin microbiome. Using this, she hopes to create a more effective and long-lasting mosquito repellent that can potentially save lives.
