A forum for faculty, staff and collaborators who engage in research and knowledge exchange concerning population health issues of animals.
The focus of Institute activities is to improve the health of animal populations, to prevent and control infectious and other important diseases of animals, and to contribute to national and international animal disease policymaking processes by providing a better understanding of disease epidemiology and pathogenesis.
Within the Institute:
- CSU Signs IMOU with Thailand's Department of Livestock Development
- APHI Biostatistician Dr. Rao provides training for field veterinarians in South Asian Countries
- CVMBS Research Day awards for Drs. Ruple-Czerniak and Ellis. Read the announcement (PDF).
- APHI Receives UN–FAO Designation as Reference Center for Veterinary Epidemiology. Read the announcement (PDF).
- Equine Events Biosecurity Toolkit is Available. APHI faculty member, Dr. Josie Traub–Dargatz is a contributor to an equine events biosecurity toolkit that was developed through the California Department of Food and Agriculture, Animal Health Branch (CDFA AHB). The objective of this biosecurity toolkit is to provide the equine industry with recommendations to recognize potential disease risks at the event venue and develop a biosecurity and infectious disease control plan to protect the health of the competition/exhibition horses and the equine population. The Biosecurity Toolkit for Equine Events can be found at http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/ahfss/Animal_Health/Equine_Biosecurity.html.
