“Wildlife Health management & One Health” Lab  

The WildlifeHealth Lab aims to develop research in the field of wildlife health.
It aggregates Veterinary Medical expertise working in DIVAS-UNIMI related to aspects of environmental health, ecology, epidemiology, communicable diseases, population dynamics and genetics, diagnostics and pathophysiology. The WildlifeHealth Lab addresses health issues related to public health economic impacts and biodiversity, both in wild settings and in environments with varying degrees of anthropization (es urban habitat).
One of the main purposes of the WildlifeHealth Lab is to foster collaboration with public and private institutions, developing shared scientific investigations with territory based activities, providing foundations for assessing the different implications of wildlife towards humans, animals and the environment.
In addition, the Lab aims to enhance the dissemination of wildlife health issues, both at scientific and educational levels (third mission).
