Meet Cosmin Chintoan-Uta who is a research scientist that works with infectious diseases. In addition to his main work on foodborne infectious diseases, Cosmin also works in the lab with a parasite called Histomonas which infects a wide range of birds. It kills turkeys, but chickens only have a mild disease from which they recover.
