Treasured Memories of 2018: Bruce Hammock Honored--and His Noted Research All Began with a Caterpillar

UC Davis distinguished professor Bruce Hammock's noted research on chronic pain all began at UC Berkeley when he wondered how caterpillars turn into butterflies. In this photo: two Gulf Fritillary butterfly mating, while a caterpillar munches passionflower leaves in the background. (Photo by Kathy Keatley Garvey)

Looking back on 2018, Bruce Hammock, distinguished professor at the University of California, treasures the memories of the Hammock lab reunion, when 100 scientists from 10 different countries gathered to honor his work, reunite, collaborate and...

Talk about not getting the memo. We walked into our little pollinator garden in Vacaville, Calif., this afternoon to cut a few tropical milkweed stems to feed the indoor caterpillars, and there, hidden beneath a leaf, was a tiny caterpillar. Well,...

From Caterpillars to Butterflies to Chronic Pain Research

This photo of Gulf Fritillary adults and a caterpillar helps illustrate the article on the Medical College of Wisconsin website. Bruce Hammock's basic research on how caterpillars become butterflies led to discoveries on chronic pain. (Photo by Kathy Keatley Garvey)

"Science is full of surprises." Bruce Hammock, UC Davis distinguished professor of entomology who holds a joint appointment with the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, is fond of saying that in his many talks. "Science is full of surprises." His...
