Mission:
The mission of the Animal Parasitic Diseases Laboratory is to reduce disease in livestock and poultry and to lessen the transmission of zoonotic parasites to people. To do so, we study parasite biodiversity, development, genetics, genomics, and transmission, and seek vaccines and management strategies, based on the physiological and immunological responses of animals to such parasites, to mitigate health risk and economic loss.
