Track II - Cape Horn ASIs: Climate change and disease ecology at the southern end of the Americas


This IRES Track II proposes an international collaboration to develop a set of experiential learning course organized around studying emerging infectious diseases in wildlife at the “southern tip of the world”

We will be conducting research on the emergence of Avian Malaria, and other pathogens in a pristine system with limited to no previous exposure to these infectious agents.

Principal Investigators at the University of North Texas: Andrew Gregory, Ricardo Rozzi, James Kennedy
