Current Research Activities: Dr. Jishu Shi, Professor of Vaccine Immunology, is the director of U.S.‐China Center for Animal Health at Kansas State University. Dr. Shi’s lab is working on novel vaccine and diagnostic strategies that lead to the development of better control and prevention approaches targeting swine diseases that are important for the U.S. and China, including porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), classical swine fever virus (CSF), porcine circovirus (PCV), African swine fever (ASF) and other emerging viral diseases of swine.
In the last 10 years, Dr. Shi’s team have completed multiple research collaborations with animal health industry partners in the following areas:
· Development of novel vaccines for animals
· Swine vaccine (PRRS, CSF, and ASF) efficacy testing in BSL-2 and BSL-3 facilities;
· Analysis of vaccination-induced cellular and humoral immune responses;
· Adjuvant and vaccine formulation studies;
· Expression and purification of viral proteins in baculovirus/insect cell system;
· Generation and characterization of monoclonal antibodies;
· Development of veterinary diagnostic assays.
In addition to research, Dr. Shi also teaches veterinary physiology to the first year students at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University. He is the author of more than 100 publications in refereed journals, conference proceedings and book chapters. Dr. Shi is devoted to advance veterinary education and industry standards in China and around the world. He led the KSU effort in establishing the Kansas State University and China Scholarship Council Joint Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) Program that is training 50 Chinese students in the next 10 years at four U.S. universities including Kansas State University, University of Minnesota, Iowa State University, and University of Georgia. For the first time in 63 years since 1950, students from China are being supported ($16 million for 50 students) by their home country to earn a DVM degree from the United States. The program currently has enrolled 28 students from China. The first group of 4 students received DVM in 2017 and were hired as associate professors to China Agricultural University and Huazhong Agricultural University.
