USDA Grant Funding Poultry Disease Study
By: Celeste Baumgartner, Ohio Correspondent
COLUMBUS, Ohio—Research on poultry diseases has not been funded well by the government. A USDA grant to Ohio State University (OSU) is a step towards improving that situation.
“There are so many respiratory pathogens that have been neglected because of limited funding which resulted in limited research,” said Chang Won Lee, associate professor in Food Animal Health Research Program at Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center and the director of the new USDA-funded project. “Although there has been some research, it has all been very small scale, very fragmented.”
