Dr. Peter Larsen and the Minnesota Center for Prion Research and Outreach (MNPRO) received a 4-year, $3.9 million grant from the Environmental and Natural Resources Trust Fund (ENRTF) to support the growth of the Center’s work as an incubator for research advances addressing chronic wasting disease (CWD) and other prion-related diseases. The funds will also allow MNPRO to significantly expand its CWD-related outreach and education efforts across the state.

CVM researchers led by Dr. Andres Perez (CAHFS, VPM) developed a method for engaging stakeholders in an evaluation of strategies for controlling African swine fever (ASF), a highly contagious swine disease that has had devastating effects on pig production globally.

A recent study from CVM researchers suggests a new target for developing effective therapies for influenza A. Despite annual vaccines and existing treatment options such as Tamiflu, the flu continues to be a major public health concern, causing hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and upwards of 25,000 deaths in the U.S. annually.
