(1) Collect biological material from terrestrial, aquatic, and marine sources for which there are reasons to suspect the presence of arthropod-active compounds. (2) Conduct bioassay-directed isolation of insect-active compounds against mosquitoes, fire ants, termites, and other insects of medicinal, urban, or veterinary concern. (3) Scale up the production of compounds of interest in order to conduct development research. (4) Conduct development research, such as insect target range and toxicological studies.
