Vector-Borne Disease Ecology
The Hamer Laboratory focuses on the ecology of vector-borne disease transmission. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, we seek to understand the mechanisms across space and time that facilitate the maintenance and amplification of vector-borne disease agents. Current projects include the eco-epidemiology of West Nile virus, the interactions of co-circulating parasites, and the application of stable isotopes to the study of vector biology and vector-host interactions.
