The arthropodology laboratory and Health (LAS) was founded in January 2015 in the then School of Biology-BUAP. From the beginning the main objective has been to generate knowledge from disciplines of systematics and ecology in arthropods, especially those health relevance. Have generated four research projects funded, a project retention CONACYT, Consisting of 12 students at the undergraduate level, Master 1 student (co-management), 11 articles in indexed and / or refereed journals, book chapters, a popular article 11 papers presented at national and international conferences.
Today, in the LAS are developing five thesis and master's thesis co-direction. In addition, it is being formed arthropod collection of medical-veterinary importance.
- Generate research projects that include aspects of faunal and ecological relevance of arthropods of public health.
- Develop human resources of high quality undergraduate and graduate students.
- Establish networks of academic collaboration that enhance the quality of the products generated in the laboratory.
Creation of knowledge in systematics and ecology of arthropods that transmit pathogens public health. I meet the needs of knowledge of natural capital, through the training of professionals with high ethical spirit in the area of entomology, and with extensive knowledge of the facts under investigation, enabling them to build scientific opinions that provide solutions attachment respect for human rights, cultural and biological diversity.
Research lines Labays
Diversity of arthropods of medical-veterinary importance to timescale and landscape.
Eco-epidemiology of transmitting insects emerging and reemerging diseases.
Bloodsucking Diptera central Mexico.
geographical distribution of arthropods.
Arthropodology laboratory and Health's vision is to be a reference site in research on arthropod and training of human resources quality that allows to have leadership at state and regional level from the generation of knowledge and academic collaborations.
