PhD project: Insects as sustainable feed for a circular economy -  Housefly health and immunology under mass rearing conditions

I am studying the health and immunity of the housefly and the influence of different rearing conditions thereon. Houseflies have great potential as sustainable protein source, since they can be reared on leftover streams such as green waste from the food industry. Therefore, the interest in mass rearing of these types of insects is increasing. For optimization and monitoring of health and immunity of houseflies in mass rearing, more species-specific knowledge on their immunity is needed. This project is part of the InsectFeed consortium in which mass rearing of black soldier flies and houseflies for use as a more sustainable poultry feed is studied using an interdisciplinary approach.
