Cesar Corzo DVM, Phd
As a swine veterinarian, his research interest focuses on understanding the epidemiological features of diseases to develop methodologies to prevent, control and ultimately eliminate pathogens from pig populations. Specifically, he is focused on biosecurity compliance and the role of endemic bacteria during primary pathogen elimination.
He coordinates the Morrison Swine Health Monitoring Project (MSHMP) funded by the USDA, Pork Checkoff and the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC). This voluntary project monitors the incidence and prevalence of high impact diseases such as Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome virus and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea in approximately half of United States sow herd population.
