The Center of Excellence for Emerging and Zoonotic Animal Diseases is a $12 million U.S. Department of Homeland Security award for a center of excellence that will work in conjunction with the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility and Arthropod-Borne Animal Disease Research Laboratory.
CEEZAD will use K-State's expertise and state-of-the-art infrastructure to conduct research, develop technology and train a specialized workforce to successfully defend the nation's agriculture economy against agro-terrorism and emerging animal pathogens.
The center will develop and validate vaccines; create innovative devices to detect and diagnose threatening diseases; and help implement systems to curtail human and animal disease threats."
