Newcastle Disease

Koelle Lab works on "One Health" Newcastle Virus Vaccine Development

With funding from PATH, CERID Investigator Dr. David Koelle is working with colleagues to develop an accessible method of distributing Newcastle Disease virus (NDV) vaccine to low-resource and backyard poultry farmers around the world. Backyard poultry is a significant contributor to both protein nutrition and household economies in the developing world. Newcastle Disease is a contagious and deadly viral disease that affects most species of birds.
