    About This Project

    As prevalence and spatial distribution of prion diseases such as chronic wasting disease (CWD; see lab note) increase across North America, there is growing public concern that these diseases may be transmitted to domestic species such as cattle and thus, pose an increased risk to human health. Our research will evaluate molecular mechanisms involved in transmission and replication of prion diseases, which is essential for identifying novel genes associated with CWD-infected individuals.
