Zoonotic Diseases Surveillance
Target pathogens: What are we looking for?
How do we survey and monitor zoonoses?
We take swabs and blood samples from various vectors: livestock, rodents, birds, bats, mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers and fleas.
We test patients presenting with a febrile illness for a wide range of pathogens, and also collect information about them, with a special focus on residence history.
We observe and analyse water samplings, micro and macroclimate information, as well as many other environmental data.
