Quantitative Veterinary Epidemiology
The group of Quantitative Veterinary Epidemiology (QVE) of Wageningen University & Research has its core business in generating and disseminating knowledge on the epidemiology of diseases in animals, especially in livestock.
The emphasis is on the transmission of infectious diseases within and between groups of animals and on factors that influence that transmission.
