Epidemiology without Borders


We are a curious, driven and genuine group of individuals who unite around the common goal of scientific discovery.

We cherish diversity -- of thoughts, backgrounds, experiences, skills and opinions.  We encourage (even relish!) respectful debate, and we value each others' quirks. 

We believe that livestock animals are an essential and valuable part of our local and global society.  We eschew the notion that livestock production is inherently at odds with human and environmental health.  And we use scientific discovery to advance livestock production in a "win-win" manner --  to benefit animals, humans and the planet.
