Zoetis has joined the UK's Centre of Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL) initiative, launched in February 2016 to tackle challenges facing the livestock industry.
The firm has become the first animal health company to become a member of CIEL, which shares state-of-the-art facilities with experts from major academic and research institutes across the UK, as well as industry members representing the livestock and food production chains.
“Zoetis has become the first animal health company to join the UK's Centre of Innovation Excellence in Livestock.“
Dedicated to researching big data principles to improve genetics and developing novel solutions to safeguard animal health and productivity, the centre is supported by 27 million pounds in funding from UK Innovate.
Several leading industry members from the retail, veterinary, nutritional, genetics and other relevant sectors have now been recruited, with the ultimate goal of bolstering the economic performance of UK farming.
Dr Theo Kanellos, director of commercial alliances at Zoetis, said: "We firmly believe that these key animal health challenges need a cohesive approach and the contribution of several leading scientists from different academic organisations and allied industry."See all the latest jobs in Animal Health
