Spence Lab

The Spence Lab is located within the Department of Population Medicine at the Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph. 

Our research explores the use of disease prevention and control measures among human and animal populations. We use quantitative and qualitative approaches to identify and communicate evidence-based strategies to improve health and reduce the risk of disease. We aim to generate solutions for complex problems at the human-animal-environment interface through research, teaching, collaboration, and knowledge mobilization.
