Megan Meuti attended a workshop sponsored by the Insect Genetic Technologies Research Coordination Network in Rockville, Maryland from July 22-27th. While there she learned how to use transposons and CRISPR/Cas9 to create transgenic insects and received hands-on training in preparing and injecting freshly laid insect embryos.
Dr. Megan Meuti started as an assistant professor of entomology at Ohio State University (OSU) in 2016. She received dual bachelor's degrees in entomology and microbiology from Ohio State, where she also completed her Ph.D. with David Denlinger. Next she taught at Kenyon College, a top-tier small liberal arts college, for one year as a visiting professor, where she developed lecture and laboratory courses on insect biology and taught first-year students how to design experiments and write scientific-style manuscripts in an introductory biology lab.
