Juan Felipe Torres-Acosta is a Professor at the FMVZ-UADY since 1992. Juan Felipe Torres-Acosta received his B.S. degree in Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science in 1988 (Universidad Autonóma de Yucatán, Mexico), a M.S. degree in 1991 (University of Edinburgh, Scotland), and a Ph.D. degree in 1999 (Royal Veterinary College, University of London, England). Dr. Torres-Acosta conducts scientific research on sheep and goats focusing on developing knowledge and technology for the enhancement of sustainability of small ruminant production systems in the tropics. Main areas of interest are animal health, nutrition, and their interactions, anthelmintic resistance, and small ruminant production systems in the tropics. Teaching includes veterinary parasitology, research skills for veterinary parasitology, diseases of economic importance in sheep and goats, and sheep and goat production in the tropics. Research projects are characterization of sheep and goat production systems in Mexico; alternative methods for the control of helminths and ectoparasites; epidemiology of anthelmintic resistance in ruminants; physiological adaptations of small ruminants to tannin—rich plants and parasites financed by Mexico (Ciencia Básica, FOMIX, SAGARPA) and France (ECOS, PCP) or Fundación Produce Campeche and Yucatán.
