Mobile phone-based surveillance for animal disease in rural communities: implications for detection of zoonoses spillover
Improving the speed of outbreak detection and reporting at the community
level are critical in managing the threat of emerging infectious diseases,
many of which are zoonotic. The widespread use of mobile phones, including
in rural areas, constitutes a potentially effective tool for real-time surveillance
of infectious diseases

Vaccinations - a win-win for both wildlife and people
As wilderness areas become ever more fragmented the probability that infectious diseases will be transmitted between domestic animals and wildlife increases. Global Animal Health Tanzania (GAHT) works to reduce the likelihood and impact of these events in the buffer zones around the Serengeti ecosystem where people, their dogs and livestock mix with numerous wildlife species.
Francisella tularensis enters a double membraned compartment following cell-cell transfer
Previously, we found that phagocytic cells ingest bacteria directly from the cytosol of infected cells without killing the initially infected cell (Steele et al., 2016). Here, we explored the events immediately following bacterial transfer. Francisella tularensis bacteria acquired from infected cells were found within double-membrane vesicles partially composed from the donor cell plasma membrane.
