RCVS Trust makes two £20 000 grants to further research
The RCVS Trust has pledged £20 000 to Allison German and Kenton Morgan at the University of Liverpool to investigate the prevalence and types of rotavirus from Cats Protection adoption centres. Feline rotavirus is transmissable to humans and this research will go some way to understanding the disease.
The Trust has also pledged £20 000 to Chris Proudman and Alistair Darby also at the University of Liverpool, to sequence DNA taken from microbes in horse guts to better understand the role of equine gut bacteria.
Since 2005, the Trust has invested over £2.7 million in veterinary education and research, and projects to improve animal welfare in the UK and overseas.
