Research Interests

Dr. Norman Beatty has research interests studying Chagas disease and the triatomines (kissing bugs) that harbor the protozoan parasite, Trypanosoma cruzi.

Project: Prevalence of Trypanosoma cruzi infection among small mammals in North Florida.

In collaboration with Dr. Samantha Wisely and Sarah Maestas (PhD candidate) affliated with UF IFAS we are investigating T. cruzi infection among mammalian wildlife in north Florida.
