According to their website, the Emerging Plant Disease and Global Food Security Cluster's mission is as follows:

The faculty cluster will develop new knowledge to understand the fundamental basis of emerging diseases caused by pathogens of plants – including the development of tools – enabling a more rapid response to contain and limit potential damage by emerging threats. The cluster will study plant pathogens and their arthropod vectors that transmit them in nature, in agriculture, and post-harvest making linkages from genomes to ecosystem processes.

The Emerging Plant Disease and Global Food Security Cluster faculty have expertise in biology of emerging plant disease agents, green biotechnology, engineering, data science, and geospatial analytics. Colleges participating in the cluster are the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (lead), the College of Engineering, the College of Sciences, and the College of Natural Resources.
