Foley Laboratory in Infectious Disease Ecology

Laboratory in Infectious Disease Ecology

Welcome to our lab! We study the ecology and epidemiology of infectious diseases in animal and human populations. Much of our work focuses on wildlife, especially small mammals, but we also study disease in humans, laboratory animals, and domestic animals as well. Members of the laboratory are particularly interested in the epidemiology and community ecology of vector-borne diseases, emerging infectious diseases in wildlife, tick, mite and flea-vectors of disease, and the theory and mathematical modeling of vector-borne diseases in communities. We also work on community ecology and ecological genetics of infectious disease in wildlife. Special interests include international veterinary medicine and ecological research (Asia, Australia, and Mexico), granulocytic anaplasmosis, Lyme disease, mange, leptospirosis, amphibian disease, tularemia.
