Welcome to the Voyles Lab
University of Nevada, Reno
The Voyles lab studies emerging infectious diseases and conservation of wildlife. We take a “One Health” perspective, recognizing that human, plant, animal and ecosystem health are inextricably connected. Because disease is a dynamic interaction between hosts, pathogens, and their shared environments, our research bridges many different scientific fields, ranging from microbial biology and organismal physiology to evolutionary biology and ecology. We use a very wide variety of techniques (both in the laboratory and in the field) to pursue key questions in the study of infectious disease. The ability to work across multiple levels of biological organization, and implement many different techniques, allows us to actively pursue exciting questions in disease ecology and investigate how emerging disease is shaping our natural world.
