Epidemiologists at APHA have teamed up with researchers at Oxford University to try and identify what risk factors drive the spread of bovine TB in different areas.
I am an Epidemiologist working in the Department of Epidemiological Sciences at APHA. I lead research projects and surveillance reporting in the area of bovine tuberculosis, with a particular interest in the factors which affect the geographical spread of bovine TB. I am also interested in antimicrobial resistance and zoonotic diseases.
Scientists at APHA have been examining the relationship between how farmer opinion and farm practices can affect their risk of bovine tuberculosis by teaming up with researchers from universities.
