Research:
Use of PCR to detect herpesviruses from nasal swabs and peripheral blood
mononuclear cells of different cohorts of horses. Sequencing
glycoprotein gene of various strains of EHV-2 and EHV-5 to describe their epidemiology through molecular
phylogenetics. Future research will focus on in vitro systems to investigate the immune response of
horses to gammaherpesviruses.
