My primary and active research areas involve diseases and injuries that occur at the human-animal interface. These often reflect new and emerging issues (i.e. C. difficile, MRSA) or evolving disciplines such as veterinary infection prevention in the clinic/hospital setting.

Ricardo Chebel

My laboratory is focused on understanding factors (genetics, metabolic state, nutrition, management, behavior) associated with immune function and health of periparturient dairy cows. Furthermore, in my laboratory we explore reproductive strategies to improve fertility of cows.

Meggan Craft

The broad aim of my research program is to understand infectious disease dynamics within wild animal populations, within domestic animal populations, and at the interface between wild and domestic animals.

PUB/CVM/CollinsThumbnail

James E. Collins

Anatomic pathology as it relates to infectious diseases, agriculture, public health and biomedical research

PUB/CVM/CramerThumbnail

Gerard Cramer

My research program focuses on providing evidence based therapeutic and preventative solutions for dairy cow lameness.

 PUB/CVM/VMC/Thumbnail Davies

Peter Davies

Infectious disease epidemiology in pigs including foodborne and zoonotic pathogens, and occupational health and safety.

 PUB/CVM/VMC/Thumbnail Gebhart

Connie Gebhart

Main focus is diagnostic bacteriology and development/evaluation of diagnostic tests. Research involves enteric diseases of animals caused by bacteria, especially Lawsonia, Brachyspira, and Campylobacter species.

David Halvorson

PUB/CVM/HuestonThumbnail

Will Hueston

Research to support public policy-making in the areas of animal health, food safety and public health. Using risk analysis tools to support decision-making for preparedness and response. One Health competencies and leadership.

PUB/CVM/PelicanThumbnail

Katey Pelican

I have been transitioning from a primary focus on reproductive physiology in wildlife to more of a focus on emerging challenges at the intersection of livestock, humans, wildlife and the environment.

PUB/CVM/VMC/Thumbnail singer

Randall Singer

I seek to identify cost-effective and efficacious interventions for reducing foodborne pathogen contamination of meat and for minimizing the development and spread of antibiotic resistance in bacteria.

PUB/CVM/SreevatsanThumbnail

Srinand Sreevatsan

I am interested in ecology, evolution, and epidemiology of infectious agents. My group uses a combination of epidemiological, evolutionary, and molecular tools to address - pathogen-host interactions, population genetic structure of microbes, and investigations on molecular mechanisms host adaptation, enhanced transmissibility and virulence.

PUB/CVM/SorgeThumbnail

Ulrike 'Rike' Sorge

My research uses quantitative epidemiological tools to study risk factors for disease and health on dairy cattle operations. Specific topic areas include paratuberculosis, stockmanship and organic dairy production.

PUB/CVM/TravisThumbnail

Dominic Travis

I am currently involved with ecosystem health studies, largely infectious diseases, that seek to understand the ecology of infectious diseases and the interconnectedness between animal and human hosts.

PUB/CVM/WellsThumbnail

Scott Wells

Epidemiologic studies related to the prevention and control of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (Johne’s disease) and to the prevention and eradication of Mycobacterium bovis (bovine tuberculosis) in cattle and other food-producing animals. 2. Use of analytic epidemiologic methods directed towards control of economically important disease conditions in livestock and poultry, including monitoring and surveillance, herd prevalence estimation and testing, risk factor modeling, risk assessment, and use of data from complex surveys.

PUB/CVM/ZieglerThumbnail

Andre F. Ziegler

Current focus is applied research of production poultry diseases.
