With today’s headlines on an Avian flu crisis, a nationally recognized faculty expert who can offer insight into this subject is Dr. Henry Wan, associate professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State University. As poultry producers are killing off millions of chickens and turkeys in many states, Dr. Wan’s timely research focuses on eradicating Avian flu and mitigating the spread of infection from emerging flu viruses. He has given lectures on Avian flu bioinformatics and genomics in Nigeria, Vietnam, and India as organized by the World Health Organization, United Nations, FAO, and CDC.
