Over £40M pledged in new bid to tackle global challenges: UK Research Councils announce interdisciplinary call including Global Infection, agricultural and food systems. Five UK Research Councils have announced the first joint interdisciplinary calls from the new £1.5Bn Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) unveiled by the Government in last year’s spending review.
Scientists at Moredun are currently developing a novel diagnostic blood test for the assessment of encysted small strongyle larval burdens in horses. The diagnostic test detects antibodies to larval cyathostomins encysted in the gut wall of infected horses. Moredun has now entered into a collaboration with Austin Davis Biologics (service providers of EquiSal Tapeworm testing) to develop the test for use with saliva samples. If successful, this would simplify the sample collection process for horse owners, enabling them to take samples directly from their horses for analysis.
The Global Foot and Mouth Research Alliance is a coordinated global alliance of scientists producing evidence and innovation that enables the progressive control and eradication of Foot and Mouth.
