Mission:
The mission of the Animal Parasitic Diseases Laboratory (APDL) is to reduce parasitic disease in livestock and poultry pathogens and their risk of transmission to people. To do so, we study parasite biodiversity, development, genetics, genomics, and transmission, and we study the physiological and immunological responses of animals to such parasites, seeking vaccines and management strategies that more effectively mitigate health risk and economic loss.
