Research: Swine Disease Eradication Center

The SDEC started in 2001 as a faculty driven initiative to establish a research and extension center that addresses one of the main issues in swine production, which is the control and eventual elimination of diseases that affect swine productivity or that constitute potential risks for humans. The Center also responds to the changing environment for a more sustainable and accountable model to conduct research with greater responsiveness to emerging issues and accountability to industry partners.
