Neglected Zoonotic Disease Group

Considering the negative impacts in public health and agricultural productivity associated with endemic diseases transmitted from animals to humans, our research group is committed to the development of new and improved tools to diagnose, prevent and control infectious diseases. We are also dedicated to improve companion animal health. Training and capacity building in these aspects has been an integral part of our mission.

The vast majority of our work has been focused on the control and prevention of brucellosis, a zoonotic bacterial disease that affects millions of people and animals all over the world
