Center for Food Animal Health (CFAH)

The Center for Food Animal Health (CFAH) within the College of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences is housed in the Department of Animal Sciences and located on the CFAES Wooster campus. CFAH faculty are recognized as global leaders in using One Health approaches to solve critical and emerging problems associated with production limiting diseases of food animals, pathogens transmissible between animals and people (zoonoses), and food safety. Their work has resulted in a knowledge base to combat infectious diseases as well as the development of vaccines, diagnostic reagents, and tests to improve animal and public health.

Center for Human-Animal Interactions Research and Education (CHAIRE)

The Center for Human-Animal Interactions Research and Education (CHAIRE) is committed to expanding knowledge of the interrelationships between people, animals, and the environment. CHAIRE is unique from other existing centers in that the animals and interactions examined expand beyond companion animals and equine to also include agricultural animals, wildlife, and exotic animals. Another important distinction of CHAIRE is the purposeful effort to consider all human-animal interactions from not only the human perspective, but also the animal perspective.
