Applied Infectious Disease Epidemiology

By employing field techniques and utilizing data-driven science, the I.D.E.A. Lab works towards elucidating the mechanism driving disease within populations. This includes the use of risk assessments, modeling, outbreak investigations, and other field methods in epidemiology.  Learn more about our research projects >


Disease Detection

To complement our field epidemiology program, we also employ laboratory studies in the detection of disease. Our labs goal is to improve diagnostics for diseases that lack a true gold-standard assay. We look at diseases like brucellosis, elaeophorosis, and canine dysautonomia. Our expertise lies in the development of novel diagnostics utilizing molecular platform assays.
