Animal infectious disease and biomedical research in the Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Science offer outstanding students the opportunity to conduct basic and/or applied research at both the M.S. and Ph.D. degree level in infectious disease. Students have the opportunity to conduct research in a variety of disciplines with SDSU scientists while earning advanced degrees in one Biological Science. This program has a unique mission, with the primary focus of the research directed to the mechanisms of infectious diseases of food producing animals following infections with bacteria, viruses or parasites. The program uses multidisciplinary approaches. Cooperating scientists work on biological, biochemical and immunological components of animal disease systems involving the host, environment and pathogen in the areas of molecular virology, molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology, developmental diagnostics, cellular immunology, parasitology, pathogenesis, epidemiology, genetics and physiology.
