VDPAM 455 - Clinical diagnosis and treatment of diseases of swine, beef and dairy cattle, and small ruminants.

Research Focus & Interests  

Dr Pineyro’ s primary research focus is in diagnostic assay development and basic pathogenesis of viral infectious disease that affect swine production systems. His current projects include Porcine Circovirus 3 (PCV3), Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) host pathogen interaction and development of diagnostic assay and pathogenesis of Senecavirus A (SVA).  Dr Pineyro has previous and ongoing collaborative projects on Porcine Circovirus Type 1 (PCV1), Porcine Circovirus Type 2 (PCV2), and Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV).
