Driven to Discover: Keeping Minnesota Poultry Healthy


Research by MSI PI Carol Cardona (professor, Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences) is featured in the University of Minnesota’s 2019-20 Driven to Discover campaign. Professor Cardona and other U of M researchers work with Minnesota’s poultry farms - many of them independent businesses that have been family-owned for several generations - to help them keep their flocks healthy and safe.

The story can be found on the Driven to Discover website: Keeping Minnesota Poultry Safe and Successful.

Professor Cardona uses MSI for whole-genome sequencing of important poultry viruses in order to better fight these pathogens.
