About Animal Population Heath and Welfare, PhD - at University of Nottingham

The aim of the Population Health group is to develop outstanding health and welfare in domestic animals with a current emphasis on endemic diseases of dairy cattle. The group’s activities include fundamental and applied research, undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, clinical disease investigations and knowledge transfer to the veterinary profession and farming industry.

Current research interests include epidemiological approaches to controlling mastitis using Bayesian approaches to modelling and prediction (Green), investigation and control of lameness (Huxley, Green), the use of biotechnology such as pedometers and global positioning (Green, Huxley) and the effects of nutrition on health and production (Kendall, Green, Huxley).

Needless to say, as a new school we have state-of-the-art purpose built facilities for both research and teaching.

A teaching building comprises a lecture theatre, large seminar room, teaching laboratories and a number of small-group teaching rooms, together with staff offices and research facilities including generic laboratories and specialist facilities such as anaerobic/microbiology, RNA and radioisotope laboratories.

A clinical building includes a large anatomy laboratory, surgery suite, teaching laboratories, seminar rooms, a large clinical skills laboratory and other clinical skills rooms together with animal facilities.

The school has taken advantage of IT in its design and way of working – all teaching rooms have electronic whiteboards and students access all teaching materials online through our virtual learning environment.

Other school facilities include 16 stables for student horses, an indoor ménage and a student smallholding. We also have access to the University farm dairy, sheep and pig facilities and abattoir on the 1,000-acre campus.
