Two CReSA PhD students, Elisa Crisci and Joan Tarradas, awarded with the Extraordinary Doctorate awards from UAB.

On Friday 8 April 2016 the ceremony of UAB 2015 Extraordinary Doctorate Awards will be held.
In this edition two PhD students who did their thesis at CReSA have been awarded with this distinciton. These are doctors Elisa Crisci and Joan Tarradas.

Elisa Crisci, under the supervision of Maria Montoya, read her thesis on December the 2nd  2011 at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the UAB entitled “Immunogenic properties of calicivirus-like particles as vaccine vectors”.

"In this study the potential of VLPs (virus like particles) from Rabit haemorragic disease virus as immunogenic viral antigen vectors in two different experimental animal systems, mouse and pig, was demonstrated.

Joan Tarradas, under the supervision of Llilianne Ganges, read his thesis on January the 25th 2012 at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the UAB entitled "Estudios de inmunopatogenicidad del virus de la peste porcina clásica aplicados al desarrollo de nuevos métodos de vacunación".

"It is a thesis focused on unraveling viral immunopathogenicity mechanisms involved in the protection in front of classical swine fever virus infection in order to develop new DIVA vaccines (ie that enable distinguishing between infected and vaccinated animals) to deal with this devastating disease in pigs.

The entire IRTA-CReSA team congratulates them for this well deserved achievement!
