Cornell Wildlife Health Lab

Promoting the health and long-term sustainability of North American wildlife populations

The Cornell Wildlife Health Lab, based at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine Animal Health Diagnostic Center, conducts wildlife disease surveillance and research, develops novel diagnostic tools, provides data analysis, and communicates findings to stakeholders. We emphasize research, training, and public outreach. We have collaborators and projects around the country since wildlife do not observe state boundaries. Since 2011, our group at Cornell has partnered with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to safeguard the long-term health of wildlife in New York. We support DEC staff and policy needs, and maintain strong relationships with human and domestic animal health professionals to address issues under the One Health philosophy.
