Our mission is to conduct basic and applied research on avian influenza, Newcastle disease, West Nile and other exotic and emerging viruses of poultry and other birds. The goal of our research program is to produce new research knowledge and technology to: 1) provide science-based solutions to exotic poultry diseases that inhibit international trade in poultry and poultry products; 2) understand the pathogenesis of these viruses in poultry; 3) determine through molecular epidemiology the source for disease outbreaks; and 4) improve our understanding of the mechanisms for transfer of zoonotic viruses from birds-to-man.
