Immunopathology of tuberculosis in domestic and wild animals

Our colaboration  in European in the pathological aspects with Reference Laboratory on Bovine Tuberculosis began our journey in this research. Since then I have worked in the description of many pathological processes induced by different strains of Mycobacterium, both domestic and wild animals. This has led to PhD theses, dissertations, as well as many oral presentations and scientific articles on all related to the immune response to tissue level against different cytokines.

Objectives:

1) Study of the immune response in natural and experimental models in domestic animals with different strains of Mycobacterium.

 

2) Immune response in camels.

 

3) Tuberculosis in wild and zoo animals.
