Vector-Borne Disease Epidemiology, Ecology & Response Hub
VEER is a collaboration of people and institutions committed to the protection of people, animals, and livelihoods from vector-borne diseases (VBD)
Since 2004, vector-borne disease cases reported in the US have increased more than three-fold*. The VEER Hub is working to address this issue through research informing the development and implementation of evidence-based, cost-effective surveillance and response systems for vector-borne diseases.

Our research spans the fields of epidemiology, entomology, geography, clinical and veterinary medicine. Experts on our team study mosquito-borne disease, tick-borne disease, and neglected diseases transmitted by other vectors.
We invite you to learn more about ticks, mosquitoes and the diseases they transmit.
