Research Emphasis:  Dr. Anderson develops small animal models of infectious diseases transmitted by the aerosol respiratory route with an emphasis on simulating human disease to better characterize pathogen/host interactions, host immune response, and provide a platform to test vaccines and therapeutics pursuant to the Food and Drug Administration’s Animal Rule. Dr. Anderson welcomes collaboration with other investigators requiring inhalational studies of biologicals or nanoparticles at biosafety levels 1, 2, or 3.

Teaching Responsibilities: none
