New Bird-Flu Research tool from the Imperial College London

A new way of understanding how highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) spreads among farm birds is published today.

The new study, carried out by mathematical modellers from Imperial College London and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, focuses on how H7N3, H7N7 and H7N1 strains of the virus were transmitted between different farms in three recent outbreaks.

 

The study could help analyse the success of different control measures in the event of future outbreaks.

Imperial College London was rated as the world’s ninth best university in the 2006. Imperial College London is a science-based institution with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research that attracts 11,500 students and 6,000 staff of the highest international quality.
