Adoptando el enfoque del estructuralismo genético de Bourdieu, la hipótesis es que la estructura del campo médico se corresponde con una serie de esquemas de per cepción y apreciación de sus agentes, que se basan en clasificaciones jerárquicas con base en las cuales se divide el trabajo y se distribuye el prestigio entre sus ...

Insects vastly outnumber people on our planet. Some are pests, but many are key parts of their ecosystems, and some may even hold secrets for developing new materials that researchers could use in the medical field. Michael Kanost, Ph.D. , a professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, has been researching the biochemistry of insects for more than 30 years. His lab studies the tobacco hornworm, a mosquito that carries malaria, and the red flour beetle to better understand insect exoskeletons and immune systems. In a video interview, Dr. Kanost explains why ...

ABSTRACTMost data on species associations and vector potential of mosquitoes in relation to arboviral infections in South Africa date back from the 1940s to late 1990s. Contextual information crucial for disease risk management and control, such as the sampling effort, diversity, abundance, and distribution of mosquitoes in large parts of South Africa still remains limited. Adult mosquitoes were collected routinely from two horse farms in Gauteng Province; two wildlife reserves in Limpopo Province, at Orpen Gate in Kruger National Park (KNP) and Mnisi Area in Mpumalanga Province between 2014 –2017, using carbon dioxi...
