Presentations

Todd Sformo is a graduate student at University of Alaska Fairbanks in the labs of Drs. Brian Barnes (UAF) and Jack Duman (University of Notre Dame). His research interests lie in how high latitude insects face the challenge of the extreme cold.

In late June, Sformo lectured at the Arctic Interagency Visitor Center in Coldfoot, Alaska on the antifreeze proteins of arctic insects. The event was open to the public and the audience included travelers from the U.S. and around the world as well as residents from nearby communities. Because he has conducted much of his research in this area, Sformo was happy to present his findings at the visitor center to show his gratitude to the Wiseman community for their help in his project.
