Research conducted BIOEPAR, finalized in perspective, are intended to:
- knowledge and methods for the management of animal health
- basic knowledge to understand the occurrence of communicable diseases mechanisms
Specifically, the objectives of the unit are:
- Measuring the health of animal populations, understanding determinants and evaluate ways to control it
- Understanding how populations of vectors and pathogens, and the interactions between pathogens and hosts
The disciplines involved are epidemiology, modeling, economics of animal health, biology of pests and aggressor-host interactions, and population biology.
Application objects are endemic animal diseases and porting of zoonotic agents in several animal production systems of European type. The unit is also interested in the biology of protozoa transmitted by ticks.
