Our research

Cutting edge research in life sciences

Our scholarly investigations address important questions affecting acute and chronic diseases affecting animals and people. Utilizing cutting-edge scientific methods, our four research clusters explore the genetic, microbial, and immunologic underpinnings of  infectious disease, as well as the biological substrates of persistent or recurring diseases.  Our discovery of these disease processes leads to the identification of hitherto unknown disease-modifying molecular targets and innovative strategies to ameliorate these challenges to animal and human health and well-being.
