One Health Poultry Hub website launches

24 Sep 2019

The GCRF One Heath Poultry Hub, headed by IVVN Network Management Board member Professor Fiona Tomley of the Royal Veterinary College, has launched its website.

The Hub, which is co-hosting the ‘Vaccines for Poultry’ session at the IVVN Conference in 2020 in Hanoi, is an interdisciplinary impact-driven programme exploring how rapid expansion of poultry production can increase the risk of infectious disease and why certain processes and behaviours are risky.

One of 12 UKRI GCRF interdisciplinary research Hubs announced in January this year, it is working in Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Two of the Hub’s Vietnam partners, CIRAD and the National Institute of Veterinary Research are local organisers for next year’s IVVN conference.

The Hub welcomes collaboration with other research organisations and projects as well as with the private sector, industry bodies, regulators, development organisations and others.

Professor Fiona Tomley said:

We hope the website will be useful to IVVN members as it is where you can find research updates on this exciting initiative, and also where, in time, you will find information about opportunities for collaborating with the Hub in our research- and impact-related work.
