VIDEO: Vampire bats remain a holdout on the global stage of rabies control Video September 11, 2014 A research fellow at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, Daniel Streicker studies the ecology and evolution of emerging infectious diseases. Streicker’s research is aimed at detecting RABV variants and accurate identification of reservoir hosts. This is critical because some vampire bat species in the Amazon continue feeding on human blood in turn infecting their victims with rabies. Spread across four regions of Peru, Streicker has identified the individual and population level factors driving rabies virus transmission in 20 bat colonies.
