Training Program in the Biology of Disease Vectors

Recognizing the need to curb the spread of vectorborne diseases, the University of California at Davis has approved a Designated Emphasis in the Biology of Vectorborne Diseases, the goal of which is to train graduate and postgraduate fellows in the biology of vectorborne viral, bacterial, and parasitic agents of human and animal diseases and their arthropod vectors. This grant Training Program in the Biology of Disease Vectors focuses on training pre-doctoral and post-doctoral scholars in the biology of arthropod vectors of human and animal diseases.
