24 September 2019 | Egyptian visit
In the School of Life Sciences, Dr Helen Price and Prof Paul Horrocks hosted two visits this summer by collaborators from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Alexandria University, Egypt. The visits were funded by a Newton Fund Institutional Links grant, led by Dr Helen Price (Keele) and Prof Somaia Abou-Akkada (Alexandria), to study a parasitic disease in camels. As part of the project, a new parasite culture facility has been established at Alexandria. Visitors in July received training in cell culture and pathogen laboratory management. In early September we held a meeting to discuss the achievements of the current grant, with visitors from Egypt and partners in the UK.
