  • Bacterial Diseases
  • Viral Diseases
  • Protozoan Diseases
One of the major thrust areas will be on developing methods for livestock protection, other than through conventional vaccines.

Development of diagnostics for major animal diseases, especially through the use of recombinant proteins and quality control.

 The key areas of focus will be:

  •  DNA vaccines
  •  Marker vaccines
  •  RNA therapeutics
  •  Nano diagnostics and medicines
  •  Novel adjuvants and antibodies
  •  Anti viral drugs

Ongoing Research Projects:

  • A study to understand the genetic variations among the field isolates of porcine circo viruses from piggery farms in Mizoram, with ultimate aim to engineer an effective recombinant chimeric DIVA vaccine.
