Infectious Poultry Disease Research Facility


The Department of Poultry Science, from its inception, has maintained a focus on poultry health. This focus area is essential in terms of serving and protecting the poultry industry in Alabama and beyond. To maintain Auburn’s ability to protect the industry, the Auburn University Board of Trustees approved construction of a new $2.5M Avian Infectious Disease Facility for the Department. This new facility has been designed to allow us to continue to conduct research with infectious agents of importance to both avian and human health. Construction will commence in the latter part of 2018 with completion expected in 2019.
