To promote sustainable apiculture and pollination, our research program focuses on three prime areas: (1) honey bee health (2) honey bee nutrition and (3) honey bee pollination. Our research program addresses both basic and applied questions to improve honey bee health and pollination. A majority of the research projects are collaborative efforts involving stakeholders (beekeepers, growers, general public interested in bees), OSU colleagues and collaborators from other universities nationally and internationally.
