Avian virology is an ever-evolving and fascinating field that presents opportunities for new tools and lab techniques.

Holly Sellers


As a graduate of the University of Georgia, I know the strength of our program at the College of Veterinary Medicine, and I strive to continue the long tradition of keeping world class standards, particularly in avian health.

I am passionate about avian virology. Specifically, I am interested in clinical and molecular virology, identification and characterization of avian viruses, epidemiology of avian viruses, development of molecular tools for identification of avian viruses and enteric viral diseases of poultry.

I was awarded the 2004 Bayer-Snoeyenbos New Investigator Award from the American Association of Avian Pathologists for my meritorious early work, and I’ve striven to continue this pattern.

I remain an active member of several organizations, and I can guide students to the ways these professional organizations can help them in their research. I am currently a member of the American Association of Avian Pathologists, the American Society for Virology, the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians and the Southern Conference on Avian Diseases, for which I served as president in 2007.
