The UGA Deer Lab has conducted research related to disease and parasites of whitetails.


  • We worked closely with the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study (SCWDS) on cryptosporidia, cranial abscess and hemorrhagic disease research. 


  • We continue a long-term collaboration with The Prion Research Center at Colorado State University on chronic-wasting disease.

Among the above photos is one of Georgia-raised fawns in the biosecure facility on the campus of Colorado State University, which was built for CWD research.
