Christopher Cornelison, a Georgia State University post-doctoral researcher, is developing an anti-fungal treatment that could curb colony collapse disorder, a big threat to honeybees and the agricultural industry that relies on them.

His research also shows promise in combatting White-nose Syndrome, a fungal disease that has devastated U.S. bat populations, which play a crucial role in controlling mosquitos and other pests.

Cornelison is building upon the work of George Pierce, a Georgia State researcher who patented a process for using these bacteria to delay fruit ripening. Learn more about their research in the current issue of the Georgia State University Magazine.
