A pioneer of developmental biology, genomics, and insect molecular analysis, Kafatos was one of the early leaders in the use of molecular approaches to the study of cellular development and helped establish the cDNA cloning technology that has been fundamental to the understanding of the use of genetic information. Kafatos’s primary research interests include insect biology, the defense mechanisms of arthropods, molecular evolution, the immune system in insects, and the control of malaria. By introducing the development of molecular approaches to the understanding of the relationship between mosquitos, parasites, infection and the immune system, Kafatos made significant contributions to the study of mosquito-borne illnesses.
