Rezension

"The audience seems to include a broad range of people: students, researchers, and, potentially, policymakers. ... I have been excited about this book; it is an essential reference for those doing research on zoonotic TB in Africa. There are no comparable books." (Rebecca Lee Smith, Doody's Book Reviews, October 11, 2019)

Portrait


Prof. Asseged Bogale Dibaba

Center for Computational Epidemiology, Bioinformatics and Risk Analysis; College of Veterinary Medicine, Nursing and Allied Health; Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, USA.

Professor Dibaba received his Master of Science in epidemiology from Freie Universität Berlin Germany and received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia. His research area is computational epidemiologic studies and risk analyses related to the import/export of agricultural products with regard to the introduction of exotic disease agents into the USA. The products in question range from conventional products (e.g., living animals, meat, milk) to non-conventional products (e.g., embryos and embryo-clones).

Another research area is bovine tuberculosis (bTB). The aim of this work is to elucidate the economic and public health significance of bTB and to recommend measures to control the disease, both in human and animal populations.
