National Program 104: Veterinary, Medical, and Urban Entomology
The vision for the program is a world where humans and other animals are safe from harm inflicted by arthropods.
The mission of National Program 104, Veterinary, Medical, and Urban Entomology, is to eliminate arthropod vectors and the diseases that they transmit to livestock, humans, and other animals and to nullify their economic impact.
The mission will be accomplished through research to develop novel and/or improved risk assessment, surveillance, control, and monitoring tools for arthropods and arthropod-borne diseases of veterinary, medical, and urban importance.
The Components of this Research Program are:
Component 1: Veterinary Entomology
Component 2: Medical Entomology
Component 3: Fire Ants and other Invasive Ants
