Qiuhong Wang to present Diagnostic Medicine/Pathobiology Seminar
Qiuhong Wang, associate professor of veterinary preventative medicine at Ohio State University, will present, "Molecular Attenuation Mechanisms of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus and Design of Vaccines Using Reverse Genetics" at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, April 29, via Zoom.
Wang earned her Bachelor of Medicine from Beijing Medical University in China, her Master of Science from the University of Tokyo, her doctorate from Ohio State University, and completed postdoctoral training at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Wang is currently an associate professor in the Center for Food Animal Health, Department of Animal Sciences, College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences and Department of Veterinary Preventative Medicine at Ohio State University where the focus of her research program is studying enteric caliciviruses and coronaviruses. Her research interests include diagnosis of viral infections, molecular epidemiology, molecular characterization of new viruses, propagation of enteric viruses in cell culture, molecular mechanisms of cell culture adaptation and attenuation, interspecies transmission of viruses between humans and animals, mechanism of enteric virus transmission through leafy greens and development of vaccines.
