The Animal Disease Research Unit (ADRU) provides solutions to infectious disease problems which have significant economic impact on the bovine, equine and small ruminant industries of the United States. Located within two land grant Universities (Washington State University and the University of Idaho), ADRU's collaborative research is aligned with federal/state research and regulatory priorities. Additional unique aspects of ADRU are its vector borne disease program in which research is focused on novel methods to prevent disease transmission and the integration of ADRU's research plan with the DVM, PhD training program of ARS and the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University. ADRU's research program completed OSQR review in 2011.
