Dr. Paul Morley is an epidemiologist and veterinary internal medicine specialist who studies infectious diseases affecting people and animals. Major emphases for his professional activities include investigating the ecology of antimicrobial resistance in animals and food production systems, using analytical epidemiology to improve our understanding of diseases in animals and people, and improving infection control and biosecurity to manage health risks that are important in veterinary medicine, agriculture, and public health. Most recently his research has used shotgun metagenomics to investigate the influence of production practices in intensive agriculture systems on the antimicrobial resistance and microbial ecology as these affect human, animal, and ecosystem health. Paul works collaboratively with Dr. Keith Belk to lead the Microbial Ecology Group at Colorado State University, a multidisciplinary research group that is investigating the ecology of antimicrobial resistance and foodborne pathogens, in efforts to address the Grand Challenge of providing nutritional security for the global population. He is a Professor of Epidemiology and Infection Control in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University, and a Professor of Epidemiology in the Colorado School of Public Health. He is also the Director of Infection Control for CSU’s James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
