The BBSRC have released their Veterinary Vaccinology Strategy 2015 - 2020.
World-leading BBSRC-supported bioscience research will transform the development and translation of next generation veterinary vaccines to improve animal health and welfare, reduce the impact of zoonoses on public health and strengthen the UK as a centre of excellence for veterinary vaccine research and development.
Surrey researchers have won NC3Rs funding to produce an in vitro tissue culture model of the cow lung, with an air-liquid interface that recreates the fundamental elements of the bovine pulmonary alveolus (the small air spaces in the lungs where carbon dioxide leaves the blood and oxygen enters it).
