Meet Dr. Pedersen's Core Research Team

Meet Dr. Pedersen’s Core FIP Research Team

Researchers at UC Davis fully intends to be leaders in Feline Infectious Peritonitis research until the disease is conquered. Dr. Pedersen is more active than ever with FIP Research. He retired from his very demanding executive administrative responsibilities as Executive Director of the Center for Companion Animal Health and Director of the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory last fall, which has provided much more time to concentrate on FIP research and collaboration. There are many FIP research projects ongoing currently, which include the FIP Genetics Studies, FIP multiple cat environment study, antiviral drugs studies, and world-wide collaborations with other universities and researchers. Dr. Pedersen is mentoring the most talented team of Doctors and researchers to secure the research momentum and continue to lead the challenge. “There is no way I would leave my research at UC Davis without providing credible successors to carry the research forward.” - Dr. P.
