PP3. New strategies for animal and public health:

immune competence, vaccine responses and diagnostic methods

New strategies for animal and public health
This work is aimed at improving immune competence by combining investigations on microbiomes and pathobiomes, exploring how organisms transgress the species barriers as well as studies laying the bases for new vaccines and methods for diagnosis and screening.
