Jay F Levine
Dr. Levine, Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health joined the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine in 1984.
His research work, initially focused on arthropod-borne diseases and in particular Lyme disease. Dr. Levine has also coordinated studies focused on shellfish safety, marine finfish, numerous veterinary health problems in companion animals, and ecosystem health. The work of the AECL focuses on some of the most imperiled animals on the planet, freshwater mussels and snails. Dr. Levine, his staff and students have been working to further our understanding of these freshwater invertebrates, develop new diagnostic techniques for studying their health and refining techniques that support their conservation and their captive propagation for the augmentation of remaining populations.
