ogram is closely tied to the work of the NOAA, and in particular the agency's Southwest Fisheries Science Center and Joint Institute for Marine Observations, which also are located at Scripps.

Aquatic Animal Health Facility

  • University of Florida
  • NIST Award: $1,267,086
  • Cost-share: $573,870
  • Information contact: Andy Kane, (352) 213-8407, kane@ufl.edu

The Aquatic Animal Health Facility is an expansion of the soon-to-be-constructed University of Florida Aquatic Pathobiology Laboratory. The facility will add resources to the pathobiology lab to enhance research and diagnostic capabilities for working with marine mammals, sea turtles, fish and mollusks. The combined 6,990-square-foot facility will include specialized rooms for water preparation, aquatic animal holding, small and large animal necropsy, molecular diagnostics, and the study of behavioral responses to toxins and low level stressors. Aquatic animal health is an important factor for assessing environmental health because the sensitivities of certain animals to environmental changes often serve as markers of ecosystem health, and by extension, the health of environments and habitats that humans share and use. The NIST funds build upon original facility support from the University of Florida's Emerging Pathogens Institute, the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, the College of Public Health and Health Professions, and the College of Veterinary Medicine. The new Aquatic Animal Health Facility will draw on extensive and diverse faculty expertise in environmental health, veterinary medicine, agricultural sciences, and freshwater and marine ecology to better understand interactions between environmental stress and the occurrence of disease, morbidity and mortality in aquatic animal populations.

In addition to its obvious importance to a maritime state such as Florida, the new facility will complement several
