This document outlines the projects granted under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 during 2015 with a primary purpose of translational and applied research - animal diseases and disorders.

The following projects were granted:

  • bacterial carriage in the bovine nasopharynx (bovine, respiratory, disease, bacteria, virus)

  • african swine fever virus: development of tools for control (african swine fever, pigs, vaccine, diagnosis, pathogenesis)

  • defining bovine protective immune responses (foot-and-mouth disease, vaccines, transmission, persistence)

  • IBDV pathogenesis and control (ibdv, pathogenesis, virulence, vaccine, immunoprophylaxis)

  • infectious disease in pigs (pigs, infectious disease, vaccines, prevention, pathogenicity)

  • sexual transmission of maedi visna from rams to ewes (lentivirus, sheep, sexual transmission)

  • genetics of one-carbon metabolism in sheep in relation to productivity, fertility and health. (sheep, genetics, trace elements, health, epigenetics)

  • mycotoxicosis in ruminants (dairy, mycotocin, silage)

  • the use of therapeutic mRNA in companion animals (dogs, renal, anaemia, mrna)

  • development of bacterial vaccines for poultry (vaccines, poultry)

  • novel therapeutics for veterinary oncology

  • supply of materials to develop and maintain tests for BSE in sheep animal (BSE, sheep, supply, positive, material)

  • novel interventions for poultry red mite (poultry, vaccine, parasite)

  • ecology and epidemiology of infectious disease in wildlife (wildlife, epidemiology, demography, management)

  • understanding batrachochytrium dendrobatidis and ranavirus infection dynamics to develop mitigation strategies (amphibian, disease, conservation, mitigation)

  • supply of materials to develop and maintain tests for animal diseases (transmissible, spongiform, encephalopathy, characterisation, endoparasite)

  • parasitic infections of fish (parasite, disease, teleosts, aquatic health, invasive species)
