University of Wisconsin-Madison
Dr. Lyric Bartholomay is a Professor in the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is also a Director of the CDC-funded Midwest Center of Excellence for Vector-Borne Disease, in Madison, which aims to understand the impact of vector-control practices on public health and develop novel vector-control methodologies. Dr. Bartholomay’s basic research and training programs encompass field and experimental biology. They emphasize exploration and manipulation of the interactions between arthropod hosts and pathogens (including viruses, protozoan and metazoan parasites) to develop novel strategies to control transmission of disease agents. She also has developed and implemented a mosquito biology and vector-control curriculum for use with children living in underserved communities.
