Innovate UK funds development of vaccine for Zoonotic diseases

The University of Plymouth received funding from Innovate UK for the development of a new and economic vaccine designed to stop the spread of highly pathogenic zoonotic infectious diseases.

They have been awarded the funding for an initial ‘proof of concept’ project to target ruminant animal populations involved in the spread of Rift Valley Fever Virus (RVFV) and Q Fever (QF) to humans.
