His laboratory focuses on the interactions of vectors with their hosts and with vector pathogens. The goal is to link research employing molecular, proteomic and genomic techniques to practical applications for controlling arthropod-borne diseases. A main research component in the Foy lab is to interrupt the intense transmission of malaria and arboviruses by targeting the vector through their bloodmeals using drugs that attack vector physiology and that inhibit pathogen development or using anti-vector immunity driven by vaccination. The Foy lab is also developing mosquitoes and other vectors as biosurveillance tools, studying unique aspects of arbovirus transmission and arbovirus survival in vectors, and studying poorly understood mosquito pathogens for their prospects to become vector-borne disease control tools.

The major research goals of the Olson laboratory include identifying molecular strategies for interfering with the replication of human pathogens in mosquitoes. By using recombinant mosquito-borne Sindbis viruses to transduce mosquitoes with pathogen-derived RNAs and proteins, the Olson lab has been able to stop transmission of the pathogen in transgenic mosquitoes. Other important goals are to identify components of the RNAi pathway in mosquitoes and to characterize important arthropod-borne virus-mosquito interactions. Dr. Olson also conducts research associated with alphavirus-induced pathogenesis in mouse models and alphavirus-based gene expression in mosquitoes and mice.

Her laboratory is focused on studying the impact of cellular metabolism on Arbovirus replication within their vertebrate hosts and Arthropod vectors. She uses a systems biology approach (metabolomics/proteomics) combined with molecular virology, cell and structural biology, and biochemistry to study virus-host interactions. These viruses cause significant perturbations to the host metabolome to facilitate the formation of replication factories within specialized membrane structures. These structures are required for viral genome replication, assembly and egress. The host metabolome also fulfills the energy requirements for virus replication. Therefore, it is a key avenue to understand the dynamics of virus-host interactions. The goal of her research is to identify control points in cellular metabolic pathways that are required for virus replication, and evaluate these control points as novel targets for antiviral intervention.

We  are driven by several motivating factors in this effort: (1) the possibility of improved diagnostics, treatments, and vaccines for infectious diseases of previously unknown etiology, (2) an improved understanding of basic biology, including virus evolution, virus-host interactions, mechanisms of pathogenesis, cellular function, and immune response, (3) a clearer picture of potential zoonotic threats, (4) the opportunity to develop new tools and methods for accomplishing these goals, and (5) the thrill of discovery.  Another main goal of the lab is to better understand the viral and host factors and human practices that are driving virus evolution.

                    [ProfileText] => Dr. Kading obtained her B.S. in Entomology/Wildlife Conservation from the University of Delaware, M.S. in Entomology from the University of Arkansas, and PhD in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Her work at Johns Hopkins focused on the transmission dynamics of Plasmodium falciparum by Anopheles arabiensis mosquitoes in southern Zambia, including examination of seasonal entomologic inoculation rates, mosquito blood feeding behavior, and population genetics. Between 2007 and 2014, at the CDC Division of Vector-borne Diseases Arbovirus Diseases Branch, Dr. Kading led studies on mosquito blood feeding behavior and West Nile virus (WNV) ecology in Colorado and Guatemala, the effects of mosquito co-infection with West Nile virus and insect-only flaviviruses on the transmission of WNV, and the genetic basis for replication and transmission of Rift Valley fever virus in mosquitoes. She also initiated studies on virus discovery and arbovirus surveillance of bats in Uganda, which resulted in the isolation of three novel viruses. She has worked for the State of Delaware Mosquito Control Section, and with an interest mosquito taxonomy, built a reference collection of East African mosquitoes at the CDC/DVBD. Dr. Kading serves the scientific community as an Editorial Advisor for PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, a steering committee member for the Bat One Health Research Network (BOHRN), and on the Program Committee member for the American Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
