Our researchers at the Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) have worked together with Nuffield Australia Farming Scholars to share research insights that will help protect Australia’s livestock
Our Australian Animal Health Laboratory in Victoria is home to a collection of historic artworks that encapsulate the great minds that walked our halls.
We’re free of some of the world’s worst livestock diseases. The manifesto that upholds this protection has just been heralded with a prestigious biosecurity award.
For the first time our researchers have uncovered a unique ability in bats which allows them to carry but remain unaffected by lethal diseases – a finding that could one day protect humans.
Though not directly involved in Zika prevention, we have the technology and expertise to contribute to Zika control.
A herpes virus that has been killing carp overseas could do a similar job in our waterways.
Bats are a Halloween icon, but their ability to transmit some of the world’s deadliest diseases to animals and humans is truly frightening. From Hendra to SARS and even Ebola, we take a look at some of the viruses and diseases associated with these winged mammals.
The InsectScan 3D uses standard components and costs less than $8000 to create digital 3D models – and we can print them in 3D, too.
What do burps, beetles and bacteria have in common? Bovines of course! At least, that’s the case when it comes to our work with the cattle industry – an industry that’s worth $6 billion in Australia. Next week is the aptly named Beef Week and you’ll be surprised and amazed to see how much research we do for the humble cow.
