Posted: 10 August, 2013
A national centre for poultry health and welfare has been officially opened by the Minister for Universities and Science David Willetts.
The National Avian Research Facility (NARF) at the University of Edinburgh’s Easter Bush campus will provide a resource for both UK and international researchers studying chicken health and disease.
The £14 million facility is the first of two units funded by a £5M grant from BBSRC with investment from the Roslin Foundation, the University of Edinburgh and supported by the Wellcome Trust.
