Congratulations to 2024's WDA/IAAAM winner

Each year the Wildlife Disease Association (WDA) and the International Association for Aquatic Animal Medicine (IAAAM) jointly provide an award for the best student-authored aquatic animal paper in the previous year’s Journal of Wildlife Diseases (JWD).

The newest recipient of this accolade is Molly Horgan, for her paper Development And Validation Of A Novel Duplex Probe–Hybridization Quantitative PCR For Lymphoma-Associated Miroungine Gammaherpesvirus 3 In Northern Elephant Seals (Mirounga Angustirostris) which appeared in the January 2023 issue, 59(1).

Molly is currently a third year zoological medicine resident at the University of Florida/White Oak Conservation, pursuing a career in wildlife medicine, and is interested in studying diseases of free-ranging and rehabilitated wildlife.

Thank you to all who made the
Endowment of the Journal of Wildlife Diseases and its worldwide distribution possible.

The $3 million goal of the Dave Jessup, JWD Endowment Fund has been met. This milestone was reached with assistance from a strong US stock market and the right investments, but none of that would have mattered without the generous donations from our members and some non-members who embraced our mission “to acquire, disseminate and apply knowledge of the health and diseases of wild animals…” and made this goal a reality.

The WDA thanks those individuals, businesses, and organizations for their cumulative gifts totaling:
