Defence of doctoral thesis on avian influenza

Next Friday, 27th November 2009, Anna Alba Casals, researcher of the CReSA, will defend her doctoral thesis entitled "Surveillance for avian influenza in Catalonia and development of new models to improve its sensitivity" directed by Dr Jordi Casal.

This work describes the monitoring of the surveillance program for avian influenza in wild birds in Catalonia during the last 3 years, and shows two models to improve its sensitivity. The aim of the first model is simulate the possible spread of avian influenza virus in wild birds in different scenarios of Delta del Ebro. The second model evaluates the probability of detecting viruses in commercial avian population in Catalonia using different sampling designs.
