New & Emerging Diseases of Public Health Significance 1999 West Nile virus New & Emerging VECTORS of Public Health Significance e.g. Aedes albopictus Efficient lab vector of >30 arboviruses Naturally infected with dengue, Japanese encephalitis, Potosi, KEY, Tensaw, Cache Valley, EEE, chikungunya & West Nile viruses Principal vector of dengue virus, dog heartworm,
chikungunya virus Degradation of human environmental quality Where Are We Going? What is Our Mission? Generate new knowledge on vectors of public health significance
Re-establish world class leadership in public health through excellence in insect vector research, education, and surveillance. The Center predicts, prevents and manages vectorborne diseases
Contribute to academic instruction Center for Vector Biology Provide vector and disease surveillance
Provide research-based education programs and materials to stakeholders How Do We Get There? Excellence Urgency Change
