Emerging and reemerging diseases require a rapid and effective response from veterinary professionals and health authorities, in terms of both their identification and containment, in order to minimise morbidity and mortality rates in the affected population and limit their spread. This book, written by experts with a wide experience in the field, reviews, in a practical and concise manner, the emerging and reemerging diseases of swine of economic or zoonotic importance, as well as those with an impact that is still to be determined, but against which active and efficient epidemiological surveillance is necessary.

PhD in Veterinary Medicine, Dipl. ECPHM

She graduated in veterinary medicine from the University of Zaragoza in 1984 and obtained her PhD in veterinary medicine from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) in 1992, for her work on the epidemiology of coronavirus infections in pigs. Since 1993, she has been professor at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the UAB, where she teaches about infectious diseases in swine, birds and carnivores. She is also a researcher at the Centre for Research into Animal Health (CReSA). She has been a research fellow at the University of Minnesota and Virginia Tech (United States), where her work focused on the diagnosis of swine viral diseases, such as PRRS and hepatitis E. In 2009 she became a diplomate of the European College of Porcine Health and Management (ECPHIM). Most of her research has been focused on the study of bacterial and viral infections in swine, and she has participated in many competitively funded and contract-based research projects, and research papers.
