Dr. Stacey Scroggs is a Research Microbiologist with the USDA-ARS in the Arthropod-Borne Animal Disease Research Unit of the Center for Animal Health and Gain Research in Manhattan, KS. Stacey was a post-doctoral fellow at the NIH's Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, MT where she studied the persistence of tick transmitted Powassan and deer tick viruses. Stacey's current research focuses on midge transmitted viruses that cause disease in livestock, such as vesicular stomatitis virus, blue tongue virus, and epizootic hemorrhagic fever virus. She is specifically interested in studying the vector virus interactions and within host evolutionary dynamics of viruses transmitted by biting midges with the goal of better understanding virus emergence, adaptation, and evolution.
