Biographical Information:

Dr. Chitwood received a B.S. in Mathematics and a Ph.D. in Plant Pathology from the University of Maryland. After working as a postdoctoral associate at Beltsville, he joined the Insect and Nematode Hormone Laboratory in 1982. In 1989, he joined the Nematology Laboratory and assumed the position of Research Leader a few years later.

Research Interests:

  • Development of environmentally safe control methods for plant-parasitic nematodes, based upon unique aspects of their biochemistry.
  • Nematode biochemistry, especially the biosynthesis and function of steroids, sphingolipids, and other lipids.
  • The isolation and identification of nematode-antagonistic compounds from fungi and plants.
