>My name is Aubrey Gilbert and I am just finishing my undergraduate degrees in >biology and an interdisciplinary blend of biochemistry and environmental >science at >the University of Virginia. I have long been an entomology enthusiast and >even >founded the University's first entomology club. I began my freshman year by >organizing collection and classification expeditions and ended giving >seminars on >entomophagy around the world. You can imagine my excitement at the >prospect of >doing research for the Costa Rican Entomological Supply company upon >graduation. I have been contacting them concerning a project dealing with >one of >their most pressing issues: deciphering the cause as to why their breeders >can no >longer breed Caligo sp. I have an extensive background in molecular and
>cellular >biology as well as field research and entomology and would be thrilled to >take on >such an endeavor. The only thing I currently lack is the funding to >complete such >work. I am not certain exactly how much money I would require but if anyone can make any suggestion as to possible funding sources, please email me at: aubrey at virginina.edu and provide any leads for any available research >grants or organizations with stand-alone funding that might help >me to complete this project?
>Thank you very much.
