BEMB funds poultry research projects
The BEMB Research and Education Trust is now providing
additional funds aimed at tackling three key poultry health problems, namely red
mite, E. coli and Spirochaetosis.
The British Egg Marketing Board (BEMB) Research and Education
Trust has allocated more money into an existing 3-year PhD project at
Moredun Research Institute looking to develop a vaccine effective against red
mite, the title of the project being "Identification of vaccine candidates
against poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae".
BEMB will also sponsor a 4-year PhD project at Veterinary Laboratories
Agency, entitled "Intervention Strategies for avian spirochaetosis".
Additionally, the BEMB Research & Education Trust has undertaken to
sponsor initial work at the University of Nottingham School of Veterinary
Medicine and Science, a year-long project aimed at the development of rational
inactivated vaccines against E.coli for use with poultry.
