Professor Mohit Verma: Purdue professor tackles bovine respiratory disease with over $1 million in grant support

“Bovine respiratory disease is a complex syndrome with multiple infectious agents, including bacteria and viruses,” Verma said. “And the emergence of antibiotic resistance has definitely complicated this issue. But I feel confident we can develop biosensors that can be used in the field that determine which pathogen is present. Biosensors are low-cost and user-friendly. Since our biosensors incorporate most of the complexity within the device, users will require minimal training. With support from FFAR and our industrial partners we will be able to create a diagnostic solution that will reduce losses, improve productivity and reduce the spread of antibiotic resistance.”
