The Infectious Disease Research and Response Network (IDRRN), as a Program of Research and Scholarly Excellence (PRSE) at Colorado State University, promotes the development of interdisciplinary teams to investigate, study, and develop mitigation strategies for diseases at the local, national and international level.
The IDRRN focuses on infectious and neurodegenerative diseases with expertise in disease transmission and pathogenesis, development of diagnostics, vaccines and therapeutics, vector biology, epidemiology, bio-engineering, human-animal bond, and team dynamics. Ongoing interdisciplinary teams (IDTs) include:
- Companion Animal Cognitive Disorder
- The Role of the Prion Protein in Cancer
- Use of Mass Spectrometry for Immunological Assessment
