The Laboratory of Vaccine Immunology develops vaccine adjuvants, novel diagnostic assays and vaccines for swine infectious diseases. Specifically, we focus our research on classical swine fever (CSF), African swine fever (ASF), porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), and other emerging viral diseases of swine.
