SOUTHEASTERN CENTER of EXCELLENCE

in VECTOR-BORNE DISEASES

The CDC-funded Centers of Excellence combine innovative, applied research programs with public health expertise to help prevent and control vector-borne disease threats.

ABOUT US

Welcome to the Southeastern Center of Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases (SECVBD)

Our goal is to work as a multidisciplinary team with key public health stakeholders in the region in the search of new knowledge and strategies to detect, prevent, and control vector-borne diseases in the Southeastern U.S. and Caribbean.

We invite you to explore our program as we pivot to expand the applied research and training programs of the SECVBD to tackle emerging vector-borne diseases, with an increased focus on tickborne diseases and tick bite-associated illnesses.

In this second iteration of the SECVBD, the center is led jointly by the University of South Carolina, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Florida International University, University of Miami, Old Dominion University, Ponce Health Sciences University, and the University of Florida alongside leaders of state public health and vector control agencies in our region.
