Global Animal Health

About three-quarters of deadly infectious diseases in humans originate in animal hosts. Through its School for Global Animal Health, the University provides innovative solutions to global infectious disease challenges. Its research prevents disease and enriches lives.

Protecting animal and public health. Researchers approach this mission in three ways:

• Detecting emerging pathogens and diseases

• Developing and deploying life-saving vaccines

• Controlling disease transmission from animals to humans

Leading the way. Professors leading the School for Global Animal Health have won international recognition for their scholarly achievements and for their outstanding contributions to the health and safety of animals—and humans—worldwide.
