Pork, pathogens and progress: A close look at PRRSV research

February 15, 2024 — 
The pork industry provides people across different cultures a considerable source of protein, essential nutrients and a versatile ingredient for diverse culinary traditions. So, when the problem of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) infection in the pork industry results in an economic loss of $650 million annually in the United States, finding a solution is of critical significance. A diverse group of researchers at the Faculty of Science and Princeton University has recently published a paper sharing their discovery on better understanding and managing PRRSV.
