NDSU alumnus Shripat Kamble has been honored with the Crown Leadership Award by 
Pest Control Technology Magazine and Syngenta Professional Products.

Kamble, PhD ’74, entomology, is a professor of entomology at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

The Crown Leadership Awards annually honor pest management professionals, university educators and other industry professionals for significant contributions to the pest control industry, their universities, companies and communities. Honorees are nominated by their peers and selected after an assessment of their personal and professional accomplishments.

“I am humbled by the honor bestowed upon me by the pest management industry,” said Kamble, who has been a member of the University of Nebraska faculty for 38 years.

His research focuses on molecular characterization of ants, termites and cockroaches; novel biochemical/toxicological pest management strategies for household pests; biochemical/molecular basis for insecticide resistance in German cockroaches; toxicology and environmental fate of insecticides used for termite control; and human exposure to pesticides.

Kamble has advised 11 doctoral students, eight master’s degree students, and five post-doctoral researchers. He has received over $3.72 million in grant funding and published more than 150 research and extension publications. He also organized and moderated 49 symposia at regional, national and international conferences.

Kamble will be featured in the annual Pest Control Technology Crown Leadership Award issue in October. He also will be recognized during the National Pest Management Association’s PestWorld conference Oct. 18-21 in Seattle.
