Dr. Shweta Bansal - Modeling Emerging Disease in the US Swine Herd

Dr. Shweta Bansal, Assistant Professor, Department of Biology at Georgetown University, provides an assessment of how mathematical modeling is used in understanding emerging swine diseases.

Dr. Bansal digs into the data and assumptions used to produce a model to help answer questions about PEDv. Specifically, Dr. Bansal's team analyzed the role of movement in PEDv spread and provide an estimation of likely PEDv sources.

Dr. Bansal closes with how these mathematical models can be used to highlight hot spot issues and allow organizations to better focus resources to solve disease spread issues.

Modeling Emerging Disease in the US Swine Herd - Dr. Shweta Bansal, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Biology at Georgetown University, from the 2015 NIAA Annual Conference titled 'Water and the Future of Animal Agriculture', March 23 - 26, 2015, Indianapolis, IN, USA.
