Dr. Brown's primary objective is to characterize the structure and function of peptide hormones and their receptors involved in the regulation of key reproductive processes in mosquito species. Species of primary interest are vectors of different human and animal pathogens: the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, and the malaria mosquitoes, Anopheles gambiae and An. stephensi.
