Laboratory for Integrative Biology

Researchers in the Laboratory for Integrative Biology study of the influence of genes and the environment on immunity in wild-ranging avifauna.

Central Research Topics:

  • Avian immunology
  • Immunotoxicology
  • Avian diseases
  • Ecotoxicology
  • Ecological immunology
  • Zoonotic diseases
  • Epidemiology

Secondary Reserach Topics:

  • Avian endocrinology
  • Conservation medicine

Current Projects

Sialic Acid Project:

This work involves an investigation into the reasons behind differences in susceptibility to avian influenza across all avian taxa.  We are interested in how phylogenetic position influences a bird’s immunological response to avian influenza for reasons of basic biological interest, as well as to inform a more focused highly pathogenic avian influenza surveillance effort.  This project integrates work at the molecular, cellular, physiological, and ecological levels and occurs both in the field and in the laboratory.
