Microbial epidemiology of farmed livestock research group


Group lead: Professor Laura Green


The aim of our research is to improve the health and welfare of farmed livestock using epidemiological approaches in a multidisciplinary setting. We work with farmers and veterinarians to study disease on commercial farms using state of the art methodologies which include statistical and mathematical modelling, together with microbiology, welfare, behaviour sciences and social sciences. Our research has a direct impact in reducing disease and increasing welfare of farm animals.
