Dr. Irene Bueno is spending five weeks on a research project at EcoHealth Alliance in New York. Dr. Bueno was granted a scholarship from a program called EcoHealthNet, of which the University of Minnesota is a part. Her focus will be related to the wildlife trade and the implications/risks that this might have for public health in the US. Specifically, she will be looking at the public health risk of rodents imported to the US. It is a project that Dr. Dominic Travis, Associate Professor, Veterinary Population Medicine, and Dr. Kristine Smith (EcoHealth Alliance) put together.
