The European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme have recently awarded a grant of just under 9 million euros to work on the development of vaccines to help control parasitic diseases of food animals.
The PARAGONE project (vaccines for animal parasites) is being led by Moredun Research Institute and involves 17 international scientific and industrial partners working collaboratively to develop new vaccines to combat major parasitic diseases having a significant impact in both ruminant and poultry production systems worldwide.
