Titleimage: Institute for Fish and Wildlife Health

We work on infectious and non-infectious diseases of fish and wildlife at the interface of veterinary medicine, epidemiology, ecology and evolutionary biology. We consistently pursue a One Health approach and connect knowledge from different disciplines and social groups. We also focus on diagnostics and the improvement and further development of methods for rapid pathogen detection. Our aim is to educate the next generation of wildlife experts in Switzerland and beyond.
