Welcome to the Craft lab website! We have a friendly and welcoming lab. We are inherently interdisciplinary as we work at the intersection of environmental, human, and animal health. Current research projects in the Craft lab focus on modeling: swine viruses (e.g. influenza and FMD), bovine tuberculosis in cattle, “large cat” retroviruses (i.e., feline immunodefiency virus in pumas and African lions), and coyote pathogens.
