Valentín Pérez. DVM, PhD, Dipl. ECSRHM, Dipl. ECVP

Valentín Pérez is at present Professor at the Department of Animal Health of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of León (Spain). He is the coordinator of the Research group “Ruminant diseases: paratuberculosis” of this University, awarded as “Consolidated Research Unit” by the local education authorities (Junta de Castilla y León). He got his degree in Veterinary Medicine, with honours, at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in 1988 where he obtained his PhD on ovine paratuberculosis four years later. From 2011 is Diplomate of the “European College of Small Ruminant Animal Health and Management”, and since February 2017, he is member of the “European College of Veterinary Pathologists”. He has developed his career at the University of Zaragoza (Spain), Moredun Research Institute (Scotland, UK) and at the University of León from 1995. He has done research stages at the Cornell and California-Davis Universities (USA). He has been involved in teaching in the Veterinary Medicine degree and several specialization courses and masters, mainly related with small ruminant diseases. He participates actively in the Diagnostic Service (Pathology) of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in León. His research activities have been focused on diseases caused by intracellular pathogens, mainly those due to mycobacteria (paratuberculosis) or protozoa (toxoplasmosis, neosporosis), in sheep and goats. Moreover, he actively collaborates with practitioners, pharmaceutical companies or farmer associations in advising and formative activities. At present, he has published more than 180 articles, and about 100 of them in peer-reviewed indexed journals. The research in paratuberculosis has been focused on the study of pathogenesis, diagnosis and control of the disease. He has participated in several research projects funded by local, national or European institutions and has been also involved in the organization of national and international scientific meetings. Valentín Pérez is member of several professional and scientific associations, including the Spanish bovine (ANEMBE) and small ruminant (SEOC) societies where he is a member of the board of directors.
