The Plum Island center is run by the Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and coverage of the work of the ARS is also included. Plum Island is located off the northeastern tip of New York's Long Island. USDA activities at Plum Island are carried out by scientists and veterinarians with the department's Agricultural Research Service and Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. The USDA states: "We're proud of our role as America's first line of defense against foreign animal diseases. We're equally proud of our safety record. Not once in our nearly 50 years of operation has an animal pathogen escaped from the island." At the Plum Island Animal Disease Center, USDA is responsible for research and diagnosis to protect the nation's animal industries and exports from catastrophic economic losses caused by foreign animal disease (FAD) agents accidentally or deliberately introduced into the U.S. In the U.S., certain highly infectious foreign animal diseases, such as foot-and-mouth disease, can be studied only at Plum Island. ARS is responsible for the research; APHIS, for diagnosis. Together, the two agencies' scientists work to: Develop new strategies to prevent and control foreign or emerging animal disease epidemics through a better understanding of the nature of infectious organisms; their pathogenesis in susceptible animals; the host immune responses; the development of novel vaccines; and the development and improvement of diagnostic tests. Conduct diagnostic investigations of suspected cases of foreign or emerging animal diseases in the United States, or in countries abroad through cooperation with animal health international organizations. Test imported animals and animal products to assure they are free of foreign animal disease agents; Assess risks involved in importation of animals and animal products from countries where epidemic FADs occur. Produce and maintain materials used in diagnostic tests for foreign animal diseases; Test and evaluate vaccines for foreign animal diseases, and maintain the North American foot and mouth disease vaccine bank; Train veterinarians and animal health professionals in the diagnosis and recognition of foreign animal diseases through courses at PIADC and at other domestic and international locations.
