£6 Million Spent to Create Immunisation for Worm Suppression on Farms

23rd August 2023

The research centre, situated in Scotland, aims to create a marketable solution to aid in the management of this significant problem in the sheep sector throughout the UK and worldwide.

Through reduction in weight and therapy expenses, parasitism is projected to cost the UK about £4 for each lamb.

According to researchers, manufacturing inefficiency has an influence on the release of greenhouse gases, rendering it more challenging for the sector to meet a zero-emission standard.

The primary component of parasite prevention efforts for worm infestations is chemical therapy, but experts claim that tolerance to these therapies limits management options in numerous regions of the world.

Professor Alasdair Nisbet, CEO at Moredun stated, “We are delighted to be able to lead this team to develop our nematode vaccine technology further.”

In addition to joining the EngineeringUK partners network, Babcock, which already has a group of more than 550 trained STEM representatives, will make a contribution to an investigation on STEM participation and give a distinct perspective on the entrance challenges in sectors like engineering and technology.

“Babcock International & EngineeringUK Collaborate to Encourage Careers in Engineering.“
President of Babcock, David Lockwood stated, “We’re delighted to be partnering with EngineeringUK. Increasing our outreach STEM programmes in a strategic and targeted way will enable us to attract and build a workforce that has the capability to deal with the ever-evolving complex challenges our customers face.”

CEO of EngineeringUK, Professor Hilary Leevers added, “We’re thrilled to welcome Babcock to our community of Corporate Members. Our members play a fundamental part in inspiring the next generation and helping to deliver impactful engineering focused STEM engagement activities and opportunities at a national and strategic level.”
