The National Center for Foreign Animal and Zoonotic Disease Defense (recently renamed the Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases [IIAD]) has been recognized as a collaborating center in the specialty of biological threat reduction for the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). This designation was made at the 82nd General Session of the OIE, held last week in Paris, France.

Bukar Usman (D.V.M., M.V.S.c)‘s insight:

OIE collaborating centres represent expertise in a specific sphere of competence relating to animal health issues. As a collaborating center, IIAD will provide its expertise internationally to support and implement animal health initiatives, provide scientific and technical training, and conduct scientific research focused on global animal health. There are more than 40 collaborating centers worldwide, working in areas related to animal health, including animal welfare, food safety, vaccine development and disease surveillance.” bovine vet online
