Entomological Society of America recognizes 2014 fellows
Date:7/30/2014

niversity (KSU), is internationally recognized for his research on insect molecular toxicology. Zhu was born in Zhejiang Province, China, in 1955 and attended Zhejiang Agricultural University (presently Zhejiang University), where he received his B.S. in plant protection with specialization in entomology in 1982. After he taught and conducted research in entomology at Zhejiang Agricultural University for five years, he joined Dr. William A. Brindley's laboratory at Utah State University as a graduate student in 1987. He earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biology in 1989 and 1992, respectively. He then worked with Dr. John M. Clark as a postdoctoral research associate and later as a research faculty member at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst from 1992-1995. He accepted a position as assistant professor in the Department of Entomology at KSU in 1995, and was promoted to associate professor in 2002 and full professor in 2007.

Zhu's research focuses on insect resistance to chemical insecticides and Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxins; insect acetylcholinesterase (AChE); management of stored product pests; chitin biosynthesis, metabolism, and inhibition; and RNA interference (RNAi). His laboratory first documented the AChE paralogous gene in the greenbug, which led to the discoveries of the paralogous gene in many other insects and the mutations associated with this gene in insecticide-resistant insects by other researchers. His laboratory developed a feeding-based, double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) delivery technique by using chitosan/dsRNA nanoparticles for mosquito larvae. He has authored or co-authored 135 peer-reviewed papers and reviews, 12 book chapters, and 325 presentations (114 invited) delivered at international, national, regional, and local professional meetings. He has served as a major or co-major professor for 19 graduate students (15 graduated), and as a supervisory committee member for an additional 30 graduate students in various
