Quantitative Veterinary Epidemiology
The Quantitative Veterinary Epidemiology (QVE) group at Wageningen University & Research aims to improve the quality of life by managing infectious diseases in populations of livestock, wild animals, and humans.
The emphasis is on the transmission of infectious diseases within and between groups of animals and on factors that influence that transmission.
Modelling the wind-borne spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus between farms
A quantitative understanding of the spread of contaminated farm dust between locations is a prerequisite for obtaining much-needed insight into one of the possible mechanisms of disease spread between farms.Read more
The Chair of Quantitative Veterinary Epidemiology is involved in education at all 3 levels: BSc, MSc and PhD. You can find more information about our education on our education page.

The research of the group mainly focuses on the development of transmission models for infectious agents in livestock, in which knowledge from theoretical biology, veterinary science, animal science, mathematics and statistics are integrated. Such models are supported with data from experiments or from field studies.
