A paper co-authored by Professor Marco Gallio has received a wide array of news coverage, including in Northwestern Now, US News & World Report, and Science News.

The collaborative research, led by Professor Gallio and Professor Marcus C. Stensmyr of Lund University, indicates that compounds in catnip may be as effective at repelling mosquitos as DEET.
