Research and Clinical Interests
Dr. Passler’s clinical and research interests include the medical and infectious diseases of large and small ruminants and camelids. His research has primarily concentrated on the infectious pathogen Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) with a focus on BVDV infections in white-tailed deer. Specific interests include the epidemiology and pathophysiology of BVDV infections in heterologous species and their impact on the control of BVDV in cattle populations. Furthermore, Dr. Passler is interested in furthering the knowledge on the pathophysiology of diseases affecting domestic and wild ruminants, and camelids.
