By Roman Ganta

Roman Ganta, professor of diagnostic medicine and pathobiology and director of the Center of Excellence for Vector-Borne Diseases in the College of Veterinary Medicine, was invited to visit three academic institutes June 24-July 1 in China: the Yangzhou University College of Veterinary Medicine, the Shandong University School of Public Health, and the Beijing Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology. Ganta lectured at the universities and also discussed research collaborations. 

Yangzhou University and the Beijing Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology expressed strong interest to work on projects of mutual interest, particularly to work on vector-borne diseases currently pursued at the center, Ganta said. Shandong University would like to send its scientists to be trained through research projects at the center.  

Ganta will follow up in developing strategic collaborations with all three institutes in China.
