The 2016 Wigglesworth Lecture and Award has been awarded to Professor John Hildebrand for his lecture entitled "How Insects Smell, and Why We Should Care". The Award is made in recognition of the great contribution of Sir Vincent Wigglesworth to Insect Biology and the example that he set in the performance of his work.
John’s research combines neurophysiological, behavioral, chemical-ecological, anatomical, molecular and developmental approaches in a multidisciplinary program addressing problems of the information-processing mechanisms, behavioral roles, functional organization, and postembryonic development of the olfactory system in insects. His program’s goal long has been to understand the olfactory bases of beneficial and harmful behaviors of insects that impact human health and welfare.
