About Andrew B Allison
In the Allison lab, we study the evolution and emergence of viruses that normally circulate in wildlife populations, specifically wild birds and mammals. In particular, we are interested in delineating the role that various wildlife species play in maintaining viruses in their natural cycles and the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that facilitate (or impede) such viruses from jumping to new animal hosts to cause disease.
