Researchers will identify genes responsible for the lack of immune defenses associated with feline herpesvirus, a major cause of upper respiratory infections in cats, with the aim of developing a more effective vaccine.
Researchers will determine if multiple parvovirus strains or other viruses are contributing to the re-emergence of panleukopenia, a severe and often fatal gastrointestinal infection in cats.
Researchers will identify ways to stop the spread of an ongoing epidemic of peste des petits ruminants, also known as goat plague, that is threatening the survival of the critically endangered saiga antelope and other wild hoofed mammals in Mongolia.
Researchers will identify genetic variations in different bacterial strains of tuberculosis affecting wildlife, an important first step toward developing new treatments formultiple species.
Researchers will identify candidate viral proteins that will be used to help develop a vaccine against elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus, a lethal hemorrhagic disease in young elephants.
Researchers will develop and assess the effectiveness of a disease management strategy in endangered San Joaquin kit foxes with sarcoptic mange, a fatal skin disease in this species caused by burrowing mites.
