The research lab of Dr. Wendy C. Turner

Department of Biological Sciences, University at Albany

Our lab conducts research into the ecology and evolution of infectious diseases, focused on environmentally-transmitted and vector-borne parasites and pathogens. We study ecological, behavioral and genetic factors affecting disease transmission and epidemiology, including host-pathogen interactions, host susceptibility, and pathogen variation and persistence in the environment. We examine how together these contribute to outbreak seasonality and long-term patterns in disease dynamics within and among host species.
