We strengthen the capacity to prevent and respond to emerging vector-borne diseases in the Southwestern U.S. and Pacific Islands.
The Pacific Southwest is a region with diverse ecological landscapes, ranging from cool temperate forests to dry, hot deserts, making the region highly susceptible to invasive vectors, exotic pathogens such as Zika virus, and several endemic pathogens transmitted by mosquitoes and ticks. Our center involves a diverse group of professionals, ranging from researchers to public health experts, to address these public health challenges.
Subscribe to our newsletters for vector-borne disease news, important announcements, and research updates.
The BiTeRS program offers services to enhance surveillance for ticks and tick-borne pathogens of human health concern in California and Arizona.
