Animal Population Health and Welfare

A PhD degree involves specialist study, postgraduate training and original and independent research on a specific topic under the supervision of academic members of staff in the school. Progression through the period of study is closely monitored through regular meetings with the students' supervisory committee and by reviews with an international progress committee in years 1 and 2. The aim of the Population Health group is to develop outstanding health and welfare in domestic animals with a current emphasis on endemic diseases of dairy cattle. The group's activities include fundamental and applied research, undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, clinical disease investigations and knowledge transfer to the veterinary profession and farming industry. Current research interests include: epidemiological approaches to controlling mastitis using Bayesian approaches to modelling and prediction; investigation and control of lameness; the use of biotechnology such as pedometers and global positioning; the effects of nutrition on health and production.
