Ying Tang Email:
I obtained an MSc in preventive veterinary medicine from Sichuan Agriculture University, P.R.China in 2012. My research program in MSc was the study on construction and immunogenicity of PEDV/ TGEV DNA vaccine, which was completed in Key Laboratory of Animal Disease and Human Health of Sichuan Province, China. During my master’s degree I have also completed another work in isolation and identification of Japanese B encephalitis virus, which was part of a research program on pathogen and hazard risk of zoonoses in earthquake affected area in Sichuan.
PhD in Veterinary Medicine and Science (2012-2015)
School Research Theme:
Animal Infection and Immunity
Immune modulation of Salmonella enterica serotype Pullorum in the chicken
Summary of Research:
Salmonella enterica infection is a global problem in a wide range of animals and in man. Avian specific serovars Pullorum and Gallinarum infect poultry leading to systemic disease followed by carrier state in convalescent animals. We hypothesise that the systemic serovars modulate immune responses to their benefit potentially driving immunity responses to a TH-2 like response in comparison with non-systemic serovars. My project aims to explore the immune modulation by different Salmonella serovars and the possibility to enhance clearance from the tissue in carrier animals by manipulate of the host response.
