PARAGONE: vaccines for animal parasites

Deliverables

PARAGONE website established

Website designed, mounted on the WWW and publicised. Work to be led by the 5M publishing arm of BAHL.

F. hepatica phenotypes

A bank of Fasciola hepatica phenotypes will be established and the stocks held at QUB

Immunological Tools Workshop

A three day workshop will be held in ULPGC on the subject of immunological tools and livestock models of infection. This will be open to PhD and post-Docs from across the consortium as well as to young scientists from other relevant laboratories working on ruminant vaccinology. A small number of scholarships will be available to facilitate travel and attendance of the workshop participants.

Stakeholder Meeting III: Stakeholders' Input to Prototype Development

This Stakeholders' View meeting will take place in ULPGC and will be an interface meeting of partner scientists from across the consortium with farmers and veterinarians to discuss the pros and cons of vaccination versus chemical treatment of parasites. Feedback from this meeting will be used to help inform product design, a focus of WP4 (Demonstration)
