New Mexico's Wildlife Disease Ecology Laboratory


About Us

We are an interdisciplinary lab that uses genetics, microbiology, and ecological tools to study infectious diseases in wildlife. We are based in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Ecology at New Mexico State University. The lab performs research on wildlife in the state of New Mexico and beyond. In addition to research, we also engage in outreach with the public through technical consultation and outreach activities. The laboratory is led by Dr. Obed 'OHG' Hernández-Gómez.
