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.

Dr. Ji's laboratory is interested in the functional genomics and molecular pathogenesis of a serious human and animal pathogen, Staphylococcus aureus, and antibacterial drug discovery. Specifically, we focus on different two-component signal transduction regulatory systems and several functional unknown essential proteins. Current efforts include determination of function of critical unknown genes and regulons for bacterial growth, multidrug resistance and pathogenesis, and identification of host cell signaling pathways associated with pathogenicity during host-pathogen interaction.

 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.

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.

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.

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.

I have been studying host responses and the underlying basic mechanism in animals and humans infected with avian influenza viruses. We are recently also exploring the emerging novel bunyaviruses that may be present in agricultural animals and pose a threat to animal and human health.
