The Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases, IIAD, works to deliver translational research-driven risk-based solutions and training applications to address animal diseases through a One Health systems approach. Founded in the early 1990s as a member of the Texas A&M University System and Texas A&M AgriLife Research, IIAD was designated a Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Center of Excellence (COE) in April 2004 and currently serves as an Emeritus COE.

In 2014, IIAD was designated as a collaborating centre in the specialty of biological threat reduction by the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE). As a collaborating centre, IIAD provides its expertise internationally to support and implement animal health initiatives, provide scientific and technical training, and conduct scientific research focused on global animal health. IIAD is the only centre of this kind in WOAH’s America’s region and the only WOAH collaborating centre within the Texas A&M University System.
