Bovine TB Science Advisory Body

The Bovine TB Science Advisory Body (bTB SAB) was set up in January 2008 to provide independent advice to Defra on bovine TB-related research.

Role of the group:

The Bovine TB Science Advisory Body provides independent expert oversight of Defra-funded bovine TB (bTB) research. It is also responsible for identifying gaps in Defra’s evidence base and offering independent advice on the strategic direction of, and priorities for, that research.

More details about the group, its members and sub-groups are available on the archived Defra webpages.
