Animal Welfare PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in the UK

We have 12 Animal Welfare PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in the UK

Understanding the Host-Pathogen interaction of PRRSV

The main objective of the projects is to study the host-pathogen interaction of PRRSV-1 with the host immune system in pigs. While PRRSV-1 can be resolved by the host before the appearance of neutralising antibodies in blood, a role for the adaptive immune system is envisaged. Read more

Understanding the Host-Pathogen interaction of PRRSV

The main objective of the project is to study the host-pathogen interaction of PRRSV-1 with target immune cells and in pigs. The hypothesis is that PRRSV-1 can be resolved by the host without the use of neutralising antibodies. Read more

Understanding the Host-Pathogen interaction of Hepatitis E virus in pigs

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the causative agent of hepatitis E, a human liver disease with worldwide occurrence. Of particular interest is HEV genotype 3 (HEV-3) which is zoonotic, infecting a diverse range of hosts, including pigs. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Cats’ perspective and welfare associated with outdoor access

Although freedom of movement is a key pillar of animal welfare, and outdoor access is considered the best way to allow cats to exercise and express natural behaviours1, restrictions often apply to owned cats. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Assessing long-lasting pain following hot-iron disbudding in dairy calves

Although freedom from pain is a key pillar of animal welfare, painful procedures are still common on most dairy farms. For instance, despite being painful1, hot-iron disbudding is still performed on the vast majority of calves. Read more
