Professor Joaquim Segalés

The restless, tireless Professor and his devoted Macintosh will set to work guiding the development at Ghent University of a new approach for the set up of a reproducible model of PMWS in pigs.

Boehringer Ingelheim has given a total of €75,000 to the three winners of its first European Porcine Circovirus 2 (PCV2) Research Award.

The dynamic Professor Joaquim Segalés of Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain was also a proud award winner.

His effervescent research group will assess the impact of the genetic diversity of PCV2 isolates on vaccine efficacy.

Professor Segalés plans to investigate whether a novel one-shot PCV2 vaccine for piglets can protect against both the genotypes of PCV2.
