Recherche et / ou projets en cours

M. Garver dirige le programme de recherche en virologie dans la section santé des animaux aquatiques. L'objectif principal de ce programme est d'identifier et de caractériser les virus de poissons, afin de mieux comprendre la circulation virale au long de bassins versants, et de développer des méthodologies prévention et de traitement. En utilisant des techniques actuelles de biologie moléculaire, le groupe de recherche Virologie obtient des informations essentielles sur les interactions de l'épidémiologie et les virus-hôte virales, qui a finalement permis une meilleure compréhension de l'origine virale, la distribution, et l'impact sur les espèces de poissons.
