Pirbright is buzzing with insectary facilities
Pirbright’s insectary facilities are among the best in the world. They allow us to research vector-borne viral diseases, including those spread by midges, mosquitoes, and flies.
Vector-borne viral diseases such as Rift Valley fever virus and bluetongue virus have devastating effects on human and livestock health, which has a knock-on effect on food and economic security.
At Pirbright, our research focuses on understanding vectors, how they spread disease, and how we may be able to control that spread.
