Marie Culhane

Biography

Bio

Marie Culhane is a veterinarian working with all species, but having a special interest in diseases of food animals, especially swine. Her research involves the antigenic and genetic characterization of influenza A viruses of swine and turkeys, pathogenesis of unique influenza A virus infections in swine and turkeys, and the possible impact these viruses may have on current vaccination protocols in place in the US livestock industry. She is also involved in animal disease emergency planning at local, national, and global levels.
