Current Position:

Dr. Vincent is a Research Veterinary Medical Officer at the USDA-ARS National Animal Disease Center (NADC) in Ames, Iowa, conducting research on the virulence properties of swine viral pathogens and developing intervention strategies against them. Dr. Vincent has over 20 years of experience in swine production and animal health research. The primary focus of the Vincent laboratory is influenza A virus (IAV) in swine.  IAV represents a unique agent that is pathogen to pigs, humans, and numerous other species, and the NADC studies focus on IAV in the natural swine host. Three areas of IAV research involve characterizing currently circulating and emerging IAV in swine, investigating virulence properties and host range, and developing novel vaccine approaches.
