Dr. Mehdi Emam, a Ph.D. Student in the Department of Pathobiology at the Ontario Veterinary College, will present the CGIL Seminar on Friday, January 26th. The seminar will begin at 1:15 pm in room 141 of the Animal Science & Nutrition building. The title of Dr. Emam's presentation is: "Cellular immuno-genomics: A new approach to study the genetics of disease resistance in livestock".
Dr. Mehdi Emam is a Ph.D. candidate at Dr. Bonnie Mallard’s Lab. He received a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Tehran, Iran. He has had a longstanding interest in immune-genetics applied to livestock. Since 2011, when he joined Dr. Mallard’s team, he has been working on the High Immune Response project. In his Ph.D. program, he is trying to bridge the gap between the fields of cellular immunology and genomics to develop new approaches to identify the causal mutations that control disease resistance.
