He's only ever worked in Cat. BL 2, but he's worked directly with rabies (part of that job involved a hacksaw and heads that may or may not be infected but someone had to crack those braincases to get at the tissue ... lovely college job), several clostridials that were more nasty to cattle but would still mess up your day, tetanus, he's worked indirectly with encephalitis and West Nile and almost had to receive an experimental vaccine for that, and he's working with one of the avian flu strains (can't say which one, NDA).
