About Brian

Dr. Foy is a Professor and member of the Arthropod Borne Infectious Disease Laboratory. He works with vectors and vector-borne pathogens to span research across both basic and applied biology. This reflects Dr. Foy' diverse interests and training, from his undergrad at Notre Dame in medical entomology, anthropology and ecology and graduate school training at Tulane in molecular and cellular biology, immunology and tropical medicine research. His current interests lie in defining concepts that govern blood meal acquisition and digestion by vectors, and parasite and arbovirus transmission from vertebrates to vectors and vice versa. Dr. Foy is also very keen on using that knowledge, combined with the epidemiological concepts that define vector-borne diseases, to practically control their transmission.
