The Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health brings together ten MSU labs that make up Michigan's only comprehensive animal health diagnostic center. The Center works in collaboration with the State of Michigan, public health officials, private practice veterinarians, livestock producers, and others in the farming community to protect humans and animals from disease and toxic substances. The new facility consolidates labs, offices, and classrooms into a single structure where over 1.5 million diagnostic tests are conducted each year on samples to determine the presence of such diseases as bovine tuberculosis, West Nile virus, and chronic wasting disease. The Center is also considered a front line of defense in detecting biological and chemical agents used in bioterrorism against U.S. animal agriculture.
