Pedro Viadanna is joining our lab from the University of Florida and we couldn’t be more excited! He has extensive experience in veterinary epidemiology, virus discovery, and more! He will be working on our NSF-funded project,“Socioeconomic and Epidemiological Drivers of Pathogen Dynamics in Wildlife Trade Networks” and will lead efforts in the Brunner lab to estimate the prevalence of three OIE- notifiable amphibian pathogens—Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), B. salamandrivorans (Bsal), and Ranavirus spp. (Rv)—among anonymous participating pet trade facilities.

Welcome to the lab, Pedro!!
