Robert E. Page, Jr.
World renowned honey bee geneticist Robert Eugene (“Rob”) Page Jr., who received his doctorate in entomology from UC Davis and served as a professor and chair of the UC Davis entomology department before capping his academic career as the Arizona State University provost, is the 2018 recipient of the Thomas and Nina Leigh Distinguished Alumni Award.

Steve Nadler, chair of the UC Davis Department of Entomology and Nematology, will present the award at Page's seminar on Thursday, Nov. 29 at the International House, 10 College Park, Davis. A reception begins at 3 p.m., followed by his seminar at 4 p.m.

Page, provost emeritus of Arizona State University (ASU) and Regents Professor since 2015, continues his research, teaching and public service in both Arizona and California. Page maintained a honey bee breeding program at UC Davis for 24 years, from 1989 to 2015. He focuses his research on honey bee behavior and population genetics, particularly the evolution of complex social behavior. One of his most salient contributions to science was to construct the first genomic map of the honey bee, which sparked a variety of pioneering contributions not only to insect biology but to genetics at large.
