Anne Lichtenwalner

Anne is an Associate Professor of Cooperative Extension and the School of Food and Agriculture, and Cooperating faculty in the Honors College as well as the School of Biology and Ecology at the University of Maine. Since 2008, Anne has been the director and diagnostician for the University of Maine Animal Health Lab (UMAHL), a member lab of the Northeast Wildlife Disease Cooperative. She is involved in research about, and service to, Maine animal industries. Anne conducts translational research in the fields of infectious diseases and parasitology, involving students in these efforts. Due to the diverse nature of agriculture in Maine, and due to the close proximity of farms and wild lands, she studies both domestic and wildlife species. Current and past funded research includes studies of common ovine infectious and parasitic diseases, moose lung parasites, shellfish pathogens, lobster immune modulation, algal mastitis, zoonotic pathogen prevalence in wild turkeys and chlamydia immunopathology in mammalian hosts. Anne is a member of the One Health and the Environment initiative within the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry and Agriculture.
