Tony Goldberg

Pathobiological Sciences

Research Program

The ecology, epidemiology and evolution of infectious disease, combining field and laboratory studies to understand how pathogens in dynamic ecosystems are transmitted among hosts, across complex landscapes, and over time. Activities involve molecular epidemiological and evolutionary studies of pathogens, coupled with ecological investigations of hosts and vectors. Projects include studies of zoonotic disease transmission between people and non-human primates in Uganda, and studies of the ecology and molecular epidemiology of West Nile virus in the Midwestern United States. The overall goal is to discover generalized mechanisms that govern pathogen transmission, evolution, and emergence, and to improve the health and well-being of animals and humans while helping to conserve the rapidly changing ecosystems that they share.
