The University of Surrey joins SAVSNET
The University of Surrey has recently joined forces with SAVSNET to help further understanding of diseases affecting small companion animals. Led by Professor Roberto La Ragione, Deputy Head of School and Head of the Department of Pathology and Infectious Diseases, Surrey will be contributing laboratory data, in particular pathology related data adding to SAVSNET’s current database. The Department of Pathology and Infectious Diseases includes, the Surrey Veterinary Pathology Centre which employs board certified pathologists, veterinary investigation officers and technicians. In addition to teaching, surveillance and research, services are available to the veterinary community which helps ensure a varied caseload for students. The University of Surrey is the first University-based laboratory to have joined SAVSNET, and we are delighted to have them on board.
Professor Roberto La Ragione said 'We are delighted to join SAVSNET and hope that we will be able to contribute to this important project and further enhance the surveillance capabilities and resources for companion animal diseases in the UK.'
