  Our interests

 
We are mainly focused on the study of transmissible diseases affecting reproduction in ruminants and porcine, as well as some food-borne zoonoses. Current fields of our research include the study of host-pathogen interactions, determination of virulence factors, development of control tools such as vaccines and drugs, and validation and harmonization of in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo models for relevant diseases from cattle (neosporosis, trichomonosis, besnoitiosis, genital campylobacteriosis), sheep (toxoplasmosis) and swine (PRRS, toxoplasmosis).
