There are a number of ongoing research efforts related to CWD being conducted by State, University, Department of Interior, and USDA researchers. Research groups in the USDA currently conducting CWD research include the Agriculture Research Service (ARS) and the APHIS Wildlife Services National Wildlife Research Center. Some of the USDA research efforts involve the development of faster, high throughput tests as well as live-animal diagnostic tools, host range studies, vaccine development, and techniques to improve separation and prevent transmission of CWD between captive and free-ranging populations.
