Pfizer appoints new poultry veterinary position

Stuart Andrews has been appointed veterinary manager for Pfizer Poultry Health for the UK and Ireland — a new position following the company’s acquisition of Fort Dodge.

Dr Andrews, who joined Pfizer in 2004 as part of its animal products research and development team at Sandwich, Kent, has more than 30 years’ experience in dealing with aspects of disease control.

He began his career with the State Veterinary Service at Bristol and Penrith before moving to the Central Veterinary Laboratory, Weybridge, Surrey, where he undertook research on parasites and on salmonella in poultry. He also obtained an MSc in immunology from the University of Surrey.

In 1990 he joined the research team at Pitman-Moore and became involved in developing coccidiosis vaccines for poultry. His work also led to gaining a PhD degree from Leeds University in 1999. In his research with Pfizer Dr Andrews has worked with pig and poultry vaccines on a European scale.
