We are proud to announce that Professor Bob Lane received the Harry Hoogstraal Medal at the 63rd American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene Meeting, which was held in New Orleans in early November. This medal, named after American entomologist and parasitologist Harry Hoogstraal (1917-1986), honors outstanding lifelong service to medical entomology. Hoogstraal is recognized as one of the world’s foremost authorities on tick-borne diseases. According to Sam Telford III, the 2014 award recognizes Bob’s contributions to tick biology and to the epidemiology of Lyme disease in the western United States, as well as his mentoring of outstanding young scientists who continue to contribute to medical entomology in general.
