UMN graduate student awarded at the 26th IPVS congress in Rio

The 26th IPVS congress was in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro this past month. A number of presentations were given by UMN speakers, sharing the latest news in swine research. Dr. Cipriano de Abreu from the MycoLab received two best presentation awards for his talks: “Mycoplasma hyorhinis detection in dams and piglets during lactation” and “An experimental aerossol infection model for Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae in pigs”.

While Dr. Fabio Vannucci was a member of the Scientific Committee, a vast number of UMN faculty members and graduate students gave presentations:

  1. Evaluation of air filters in swine farms as a surveillance method to assess the spread of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome and influenza A viruses, Gustavo Lopez

  3. Changes in the upper and lower respiratory microbiome during early Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infection in pigs, Maria Pieters
  4. Sow mortality: Removal reasons and factors associated with increased mortality, Guilherme Preis
  5. Distinguishing viable from non-viable Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae by PCR, Maria Pieters
  6. Multi-farm long-term investigation of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae detection in processing fluids, Maria Pieters
  7. Assessing Senecavirus A shedding and transmission in growing pig populations, Guilherme Preis
  8. An experimental aerosol infection model for Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae in pigs, Cipriano De Abreu
