Charles Doane Lecture Series

Overview

The Department of Entomology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison hosts a special seminar series annually, entitled "The Charles Chesley Doane Distinguished Lecture." Held during the fall semester, the event includes a main lecture of broad interest to the entire campus community plus a smaller, more specialized lecture to a narrower audience of mostly entomologists.

A gracious endowment from the Doane family, including his wife, Dr. Winifred Doane, Professor Emeritus, School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, and their son Timothy P. Doane, supports this special event. The Department enthusiastically organizes this lecture series and greatly appreciates the opportunity to honor the legacy of Dr. Charles Doane.

About Charles "Chuck" Chesley Doane

 

 

Dr. Chuck Doane attended UW-Madison, receiving his M.S. in 1951 and Ph.D. in 1953. He studied the management of vegetable pests in the Department of Entomology under the direction of Dr. R. Keith Chapman. In a career spanning 46 years he developed innovative programs for many companies around the world.

Dr. Fred Gould, William Neal Reynolds Professor, Department of Entomology, North Carolina State University - Raleigh, will present the 2015 Charles Chesley Doane Lecture in Entomology on Friday, April 17th entitled, "Genetics and Society: From Vavilov to the Green Bunny".

About Dr. Gould

Dr. Gould’s lab group investigates the ecology and genetics of insect pests in order to better understand natural and human-induced evolution.  Diverse approaches are used to achieve these goals, ranging from molecular analysis and ecological experiments to mathematical and computer modeling.  Fred’s group, “works collectively as a team, respects each other's contributions, and has fun along the way”.  The lab has historically focused on pests of agricultural importance, as seen in research projects with the headings "plant-insect interactions", "evolution of moth sexual communication systems", and "evolution of resistance in crop pests". In the past 5 years, The Gould Lab has expanded their research to also include pests such as mosquitoes that their direct impacts on human health. The project entitled "genetic pest management" reflects a belief that genetic engineering of insects can be used as a tool for reducing the impacts from pests of medical and agricultural importance.
