The Vector-borne Disease Lab is dedicated to the control of emerging tick & mosquito-borne diseases and translating our findings to the general public.

We seek to:

  • understand the environmental interactions of vectors, hosts, habitats, and climate
  • monitor the geography of risk
  • increase public awareness of the threat of tick and mosquito-borne diseases
