Haroldo Toro

Dr. Haroldo Toro is Professor in the Department of Pathobiology at Auburn University. He received his DVM degree in 1983 from the University of Chile’s College of Veterinary Sciences. In 1987, Dr. Toro received his PhD from the Institute of Avian Diseases of the Justus-Liebig-University in Giessen, Germany. Dr. Toro’s current research focuses on further understanding chicken anemia virus and its interactions with other avian pathogens, and further understanding the role of infectious bronchitis virus in respiratory disease of commercial chickens. During his career, Dr. Toro has also focused on other relevant avian diseases including for example avian influenza and inclusion body hepatitis. He has published 93 articles in peer-reviewed international scientific journals and is a member of the editorial board of the Avian Diseases journal. Dr. Toro was awarded the Pfizer Award for Research Excellence in 2007, the L. G. Wolfe Award for Excellence in Graduate Education in 2013, the Auburn University Alumni Professorship in 2013, and the P. P. Levine Award by the American Association of Avian Pathologists (AAAP).
