PhD grant 2012
I am writing this email to deeply thank the ESVD for its help by granting me the research scholarship for 2012. Thanks to it I have been able to do all the studies that ended with the works that have allowed me to recently (November of 2018) obtain the PhD degree. Thank you immensely from the bottom of my heart, Please submit this email to the board of the ESVD and to you believe it is convenient.
Below I detail the studies that have been part of my thesis:

Mar Bardagi, Departament de Medicina i Cirurgia Animals, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain
Starting date and finishing date: September 2011-September 2014
Study description: We propose a multiple approach to get a better insight in canine demodicosis. This approach includes improving the knowledge of the epidemiology of Demodex parasitism in the dogs and investigating the immune response in canine demodicosis.
Publications from this work: “Investigations on the dog-Demodex relationship: all dogs harbour Demodex mites in the skin, but only dogs with demodicosis have antibodies against Demodex”, WCVD, Vancouver, 2012. Ravera I, Altet L, Francino O, Sánchez A, Villanueva S, Bardagi M, Ferrer L
"It was an honor to be selected for ESVD/ECVD PhD scholarship. When we were informed about it, we could not believe it! We thought that all the ideas that were kept in our minds finally would become in form and reality. We are really enjoying our work and we hope to have many interesting results. We want to thank all the ESVD and ECVD Board members for promoting the research in Veterinary Dermatology. Many thanks to all of them!"
