Research Sub-theme

Bovine tuberculosis and brucellosis at the wildlife/livestock/human interface

Bovine tuberculosis and brucellosis are infectious, zoonotic multi-host diseases which thrive in multi-host ecosystems. The causative agents can be transmitted between livestock and wildlife and to humans, requiring in-depth studies of the epidemiology as well as optimised diagnostic and innovative control strategies.
