Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases

The overall aim is to unravel mechanisms underlying the occurrence, evolution, spread and control of diseases in (farm) animal populations, and to develop and use quantitative methodological tools for that purpose. We aim to understand observed population phenomena from mechanistic insight into disease development at the level of individuals and the interactions both between these individuals and with their environment. We aim to identify risk factors and preventive factors for the spread or clinical manifestation of animal diseases acting at the primary production stages and to quantify their effects.
