Master of Science in Entomology Program
at Cornell University

The Northeast Regional Center of Excellence for Vector-Borne Diseases together with Cornell’s Department of Entomology are excited to announce a new Master of Science in Entomology: Vector-Borne Disease Biology graduate program. This interdisciplinary master’s program will fall under the Medical and Veterinary Entomology Concentration, combining courses offered through entomology, public health, and veterinary medicine units at Cornell University.

Graduates in the program can expect to interact with medical entomologists, virologists, epidemiologists, field ecologists, modelers, and molecular biologists not only at Cornell, but also at leading academic, state government, and public health institutions in the Northeast through our collaborative Center for Excellence, including Columbia University, the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station and the New York State Department of Health.

NEVBD Investigations on Vector-Borne Disease & Public Health Training

NEVBD Vector-Borne Disease Surveillance & Control Training Needs Assessment

The Northeast Regional Center for Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases has a targeted goal to support efforts to train current and future public health entomologists, as well as provide opportunities for professional development to individuals working in the surveillance and control of vectors and the diseases they carry.

The NEVBD conducted a needs assessment in Summer 2017 to inform the development of these training programs. Our needs assessment was completed by representatives from West Virginia to Maine working in public health, environmental science, vector control, research, and medicine.
