Wednesday Nite @ The Lab

Discovering new pathogens in wildlife from Wisconsin and beyond

Event Details

Wednesday, January 29, 2020
7-8:15 p.m.
The race is on to discover the world’s pathogens, driven by new diagnostic technologies and unprecedented access to remote locations. These technologies and field methods are revolutionizing our understanding of the diversity and distribution of wildlife diseases worldwide. This talk describes how such an approach has revealed novel pathogens and their ecological transmission pathways in diverse wildlife systems in Wisconsin and beyond, sometimes by design and sometimes fortuitously.
