Chair
Daniel Ciobanu
University of Nebraska
Lincoln, NE United States

Term of Service (2nd, 2021-2025)

Daniel Ciobanu is a professor of molecular genetics at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. His research is focused in applying functional genomics approaches to identify genes, DNA polymorphisms, and pathways associated with variation of complex phenotypes, including viral disease resistance (porcine circovirus 2, porcine reproductive and respiratory virus, atypical porcine pestivirus) and sow fertility.
