Under the leadership of microbiologist William Wilson, ABADRL scientists are pursuing RVF research with three main objectives: to determine which North American mosquito species are competent to transmit the RVF virus; to develop sensitive and specific diagnostic tools; and to develop and evaluate vaccines.
To meet the first objective, ABADRL scientists are investigating whether there is a vector genetic component to RVF transmission.
The ABADRL scientists are working with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service to develop operator-safe, sensitive diagnostic tests for early detection.
