To Foster and Promote a Cohesive and Synergistic Environment for Interdisciplinary and Collaborative Research

Infectious diseases are constantly emerging and reemerging worldwide, causing immense threats to the health of humans, animals, and plants. This is especially clear with the COVID-19 pandemic that has caused more than 646 million human infections worldwide.

To meet this challenge, Virginia Tech created the Center for Emerging, Zoonotic, and Arthropod-borne Pathogens. CeZAP is supported by the Fralin Life Sciences Institute and includes faculty participants from at least seven colleges and more than 31 departments.

The vision of the center positions Virginia Tech to become a national and international research and training resource that is a leader in advancing transformative science and developing effective countermeasures against emerging infectious diseases.

The mission is to foster and promote a cohesive and synergistic environment for interdisciplinary and collaborative research across the Virginia Tech campus in the area of emerging, re-emerging, infectious diseases.
