About the Lab
We are a small, young and energized lab looking to do great science while having fun and being good citizens.
We are a diverse lab that integrates skills from many disciplines, including: epidemiology, veterinary medicine, computer science, molecular biology and statistics.
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, and we use scientific discovery to advance livestock production in a "win-win" manner -- to benefit animals, humans and the planet.
We conduct research to address critical challenges in public health, livestock production and veterinary medicine.
IN THE LAB, WE:
Do meticulous science
Help each other
Challenge ourselves and each other
Respect everyone (including pathogens & animals)
Communicate well and often
Maintain transparency and reproducibility
Recognize bias (scientific and otherwise)
