Please join us for a Zoom seminar presented by Sally Davis, assistant professor of Experimental Pathology at Kansas State University.

This talk will present insights regarding RVF pathogenesis in sheep gleaned from macro- and microscopic pathology as well as viral antigen and nucleic acid distribution of Rift Valley fever virus in over 200 naturally infected sheep, lambs and fetuses including placenta. Additional, topics for discussion will be the importance of type and number of diagnostic samples to collect, limitations of current diagnostic tests and correlation of natural disease findings with those from experimental animal studies. Finally, this talk will touch on a case of RVF vaccine induced disease in alpaca.
