RatZooMan - short for Rodent Zoonosis Management

This research project completed its research activities in June 2006. The project used a multidisciplinary approach to further our understanding about emerging infectious diseases affecting people and their livelihoods. The project involved scientists from different countries in Europe and Africa with expertise in the biological, environmental and social sciences with a particular focus on rodents as disease vectors and the role they play in the spread and transmission of many diseases. Funding for this project was obtained by the European Commission Framework Five Programme for International Cooperation.

This website will tell you more about the project, its activities and progress as well as provide links to relevant documents, websites and research groups from around the world focussing on rodents and zoonosis.
