Honey bees are an important pollinator of many species of plants and crops, and recent worldwide colony losses have highlighted the need to better understand honey bee health and disease. My research uses proteomics and mass spectrometry to investigate the impact of pathogens, and specifically evaluate how single and multiple virus infections affect their honey bee host. By increasing our understanding of the host-pathogen response, we will be able to move toward the development of therapeutics to combat these pathogens and help maintain healthy colony populations.
