• To strengthen surveillance on prevalence of zoonoses.
  • To provide a roadmap for improving the understanding about the ecology of zoonotic infections / pathogens through application of advanced approaches in molecular surveillance, pathobiology, genomics, and metagenomics.
  • To estimate the magnitude of reverse zoonoses.
  • To study pathogen–host–environment dynamics, and pathogen evolution
  • To develop analytical system based on sub-typing, finger printing, sequencing and proteomics to evaluate epidemiological and evolutionary dynamics of the zoonotic pathogens
  • Capacity building of the scientists, researchers, health professionals, wild life experts, environmental scientists and academicians.
  • To promote “One-Health” approach that links human, animal and wildlife health for prevention and control of zoonotic infections and its drivers through holistic and interdisciplinary approaches.

The study focuses on zoonotic diseases given below:

  • Listeriosis
  • Brucellosis
  • Tuberculosis
  • Leptospirosis
  • Scrub typhus
  • Rotaviral infections
