Today, the Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases (IIAD), a Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Center of Excellence, launched a new look for its website, iiad.tamu.edu.
The newly designed website offers a fresh look at the Institute’s portfolio of work and streamlined way to navigate through content.
“The redesign of iiad.tamu.edu not only brings an updated look to the website,” said Gerald Parker, DVM, Ph.D., M.S., IIAD director. “It also provides a great potential to enhance the visibility of our work and lays groundwork that I believe will really benefit the Institute as we continue to expand our network of partners and research projects in the global agriculture and public health arena.”
In addition to hosting a wealth of information about the Institute’s projects, iiad.tamu.edu also provides visitors with a resource library containing reports from past meetings and workshops, a network of investigators who collaborate with the Institute, an event calendar containing IIAD and industry events, along with information about career and internship opportunities. The website’s homepage also includes improved avenues for showcasing the Institute’s newest products, projects and educational opportunities.
Headquartered in College Station, Texas, IIAD was founded in 2004 as a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Center of Excellence. The Institute focuses on research, education and outreach to prevent, detect, mitigate and recover from transboundary, emerging and/or zoonotic diseases, which may be introduced intentionally or through natural processes. In 2014, IIAD was recognized by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) as a Collaborating Centre in the specialty of biological threat reduction. IIAD is the only centre of this kind in OIE’s America’s region and the only OIE Collaborating Centre within the Texas A&M University System. For more information, visit iiad.tamu.edu.
