The Marine Disease Ecology Laboratory at SERC conducts research at the intersection of disease and parasite ecology, examining multi-parasite and multi-host systems across habitats and geographic regions. This research incorporates a wide range of parasite and host phyla, and examines the role of environmental reservoirs in the ecology and epidemiology of marine disease.
More specifically, research in the Marine Disease Ecology Laboratory examines:
1) Parasite Biogeography: Invasions and Biodiversity Assessments
2) How Biodiversity Impacts Disease in Aquatic Systems
3) Impacts of Disease and Parasites on Ecosystem Function
