Beef Central, Other, 02/05/2023
Meat & Livestock Australia has funded a project to produce and test mRNA vaccines that can be rapidly mass produced in Australia in the event of a lumpy skin disease or other exotic disease outbreak. Here, MLA’s Program Manager for Animal Wellbeing, Michael Laurence explains more about this project and what it will deliver. […] “This project is a partnership between NSW Department of Primary Industries, Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (CSIRO) and an American biotechnology company (Tiba Biotech) to develop a mRNA vaccine pipeline initially for LSD, but potentially for other emergency diseases,” Mr Laurence said.
