​Our work in vaccine and diagnostic development is centred around the status of important diseases of livestock affecting both commercial as well as small scale operations in South Africa and neighbouring countries. Effective control depends extensively on a good understanding of disease epidemiology as much as having good diagnostic tools and vaccines. A thorough basic understanding of the biology of the pathogens, how they spread and evolve, and their interactions with host species is essential for any long term control strategy.
