Medical XPress carries UMaine release on Kamath’s pathogen research

Medical XPress carried a University of Maine news release about a National Science Foundation award to fund research co-led by Pauline Kamath, an assistant professor of animal health at UMaine. Kamath will work with Wendy Turner, an assistant professor of biological sciences at University at Albany, State University of New York, and others from the University of Pretoria, University of Namibia, University of Oslo and University of Hohenheim. The nearly $2.5 million, four-year project will investigate ways to better predict the emergence, spread and evolution of the environmentally transmitted pathogen that causes anthrax. The research has implications for public health, agriculture and biosecurity, according to the release.
