The Cornell Wildlife Health Lab works to promote the health and long term sustainability of wildlife populations through integration of the fields of wildlife ecology and veterinary medicine. We conduct disease surveillance and collaborative research, develop diagnostic tools, and communicate findings through training, teaching and public outreach. The lab is based at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine Animal Health Diagnostic Center (AHDC).
