 The research carried out at BIOEPAR, with a finalised perspective, aims to produce :

  • knowledge and methods for animal health management
  • fundamental knowledge to understand the mechanisms of communicable disease emergence

More specifically, the objectives of the unit are as follows:

  • To measure the health of animal populations, to understand the determinants of health and to evaluate the means to control it.
  • To understand the functioning of vector and pathogen populations and the interactions between pathogens and host.

The disciplines involved are epidemiology, modelling, animal health economics, biology of pests and host-pest interactions, and population biology.

The objects of application are endemic animal diseases and the carriage of zoonotic agents in several European-type animal production systems. The unit is also interested in the biology of tick-borne protozoa.
