Joe Rinehart

Acting Research Leader, Principle Investigator

Since my grad school days, I’ve been primarily focused on insect stress physiology.  Although I have a soft spot for cold stress, I find most any stress intriguing, and I’m interested in most any aspect of the stress response.  This is important because insects rule the world, and the ability to withstand a large range of stresses is a significant reason why.
