At the event, he delivered a lecture called “Finding source of wind-borne odor in moths and mosquitoes: known mechanisms and outstanding issues” and received a $5,000 award.

Cardé’s main research interests are in basic and applied aspects of odor-mediated behavior of insects, focusing on communication by pheromones in moths and host-finding by female mosquitoes.

His contributions to the fundamental understanding of insect orientation and semiochemicals, and the methods used to study these phenomena have set a high standard in this broad field of research. They are published in over 250 peer-reviewed scientific publications or book chapters and eight books, including The Encyclopedia of Insects and A World of Insects, which make insects understandable to a lay audience.

Doctor Will Participate in Two-Year Program With California Health Care Foundation

Karen Noblett, MD, professor and chair of obstetrics and gynecology in the UCR School of Medicine, joins 31 other clinical leaders who have been selected to participate in a two-year leadership program offered through the California Health Care Foundation (CHCF). Participants were selected to expand their leadership skills and meet the challenges facing California’s health care system.

“Participants in the CHCF Health Care Leadership Program are extraordinary for their commitment to making their organizations better,” said Sandra R. Hernández, MD, president and CEO of CHCF. “As a result, the people of California will receive health care that they deserve with efficiency and dignity.”

The leadership program is a part-time fellowship that offers clinically trained health care professionals hands-on opportunities to learn decision-making, strategic planning, and executive skills they need to excel as multifaceted leaders.

Fellows attend six seminars and participate in ongoing learning activities during the program.

More than 400 doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals have participated in the program since its inception in 2001. Health care and leadership development experts at UCSF teach the curriculum.

CHCF advances meaningful, measurable improvements in the way the health care delivery system provides care to Californians, particularly those with low incomes and those whose needs are not well served by the status quo.
