A Watchful Eye on Swine Disease

Dr. Giovani Trevisan (PhD ‘20)
A casual conversation at a swine meeting in Minnesota eventually led Giovani Trevisan to become the first Iowa State graduate to earn a doctoral degree in population sciences in animal health. “Iowa State is recognized by the level of study that it provides, they have outstanding professors, and is a swine-revered university, so that’s what was attractive,” Trevisan says. “I had the opportunity to meet Daniel Linhares who became my adviser, and I felt very confident that we could work together and develop a good project.”
