Posted: 4 December, 2012
Researchers at The Pirbright Institute, which receives strategic funding from BBSRC, in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Oxford working together as the Jenner Institute, have taken an important step towards a universal vaccine against avian influenza. This virus disease threatens the £8 billion poultry industry in the UK and poses a risk of new human strains of flu. The research is published ‘In Press’ in the journal Vaccine.
