Dr. Gary Whittaker, professor of virology here at the College of Veterinary Medicine in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology has been at the forefront of helping us to better understand how FIP develops. His work, funded in part by the Cornell Feline Health Center, holds tremendous promise to help identify new therapeutic targets to treat FIP and to better diagnose it.
We invite you to learn more by hearing directly from Dr. Whittaker, and Dr. Beth Licitra, extension associate, on their research and development initiatives.
