Dr. Jung’s principal research interests are to understand and improve swine disease and health; and to develop swine models for the study of human disease. Dr. Jung earned his MS and PhD in veterinary pathology at Seoul National University. His graduate training mainly consisted of performance of necropsy, macroscopic and microscopic diagnosis, and development of various in situ diagnostic methods, such as in situ hybridization. Dr. Jung’s primary expertise includes histopathologic diagnosis of swine viral pathogens and characterization of their pathogenesis and disease mechanisms. As a Research Scientist in Dr. Linda Saif’s lab, he currently focuses on studying development of in situ diagnostic methods for various human and animal viruses (primary interest in coronaviruses and noroviruses); and disease mechanisms and pathogenesis of various human and animal viruses (coronaviruses and noroviruses) in germ-free and conventional pig or calf models.
