Kevin Myles, Ph.D. is currently a professor of entomology at Texas A & M University (TAMU). He earned his Ph.D. in Microbiology from Colorado State University in 2002, working under Professors Barry Beaty, a member of the prestigious National Academy of Sciences, Ken Olson and Carol Blair at the Arthropod Infectious Disease Laboratories (AIDL). After completing his Ph.D., Myles was awarded a postdoctoral research fellowship by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and National Center for Infectious Diseases (NCID), which he served at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Vector-borne Infectious Diseases, under Dr. Ann Powers. In 2005, Kevin accepted an Assistant Professor position at Virginia Tech University, where he remained until moving to TAMU in 2016. Projects in his laboratory focus on understanding the role of invertebrate antiviral immune pathways in the transmission of mosquito-borne viruses. Myles’ multidisciplinary approach to this research area has resulted in several key discoveries regarding antiviral immunity in disease vector mosquitoes.
