Mauricio Coppo

 

Dr. Mauricio J. C. Coppo is a veterinarian with an interest in developing solutions to problems in animal health, based on the understanding of the pathogenesis, immunity and epidemiology of infectious diseases that affect animals. Over the past decade his research has focused on the investigation of the pathogenesis of poultry diseases, with a special focus on infectious larygotracheitis (ILT).

Dr Coppo gained his veterinary degree at the University of Chile in 2002 and worked in the poultry industry as a field veterinarian before completing a Master of Veterinary Science (by research) and a PhD in avian microbiology and immunology at the University of Melbourne. Following postdoctoral research fellowships in veterinary virology and avian immunology, Dr Coppo has now expanded his area of interest into antimicrobial resistance, use and stewardship. As part of the UK and Australian government One Health initiatives in South East Asia and the Pacific, Dr Coppo is working in collaboration with human health experts in several Australian medical research institutes to support the work of scientists, veterinarians and local government officials of countries accross the region, to help tackle one of the most significant public health threats facing our planet.
