Myra Dickey graduated with a Bachelor of Science at Salisbury University in Maryland; majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry. Her first research project was centered around honey bees, and she knew immediately she would be studying these insects for the rest of her career. She is now a third-year PhD student at Texas A&M University studying a wild population of honey bees located at the Welder Wildlife Refuge in South Texas. The goal of her dissertation is to quantify viral loads, Nosema levels, and to identify DWV variants in this wild population.
