Dr. Óscar Cabezón, a researcher from the conservation medicine research group (WildCoM) at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the UABFaculty of Veterinary Medicine of the UAB, emphasized the importance of understanding and controlling emerging infectious diseases transmitted by ticks to prevent contagious outbreaks.

From his research group, WildCoM, they study the ecology of these diseases from a holistic perspective, highlighting how human-caused environmental changes can influence the presence of a pathogen in the environment.
