Abstract

Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.
 
Description This Brazil Partnering Award was used for developing research collaboration that led to the winning a BBSRC grant (BB/M008681/1) application under BBSRC FAPESP call. The links established through this award have also led to the grant from British Council (172710323). Partners from Brazil were funded to participate in the First Global Alliance for Research on Avian Diseases (GARAD) meeting in London in July 2015 attended by over 120 participants from around the world.
Exploitation Route We will be organizing an international Symposium in 2017 to further consolidate the research output and networking activities. Efforts will be made to ensure the participation of early career researchers both from UK and from Brazil
