Episode 50: IBAHCM’s March Highlights
What do rotting seals, cow pathogens and rabid Tanzanian dogs have in common? Well, they are all topics of recent research papers published by Institute staff and students.
Every month our fantastic researchers publish papers, are awarded grants and create new initiatives. To celebrate this, in this episode of Naturally Speaking we are trying something new: an IBAHCM month in review! In this first of a new series, NS editors Taya Forde, Stephen Larcombe, Laurie Baker and James Burgon look at some of the recent research papers to come out of the Institute, and share a few of their favourite moments from the month of March.
As this is new, we would love your feedback. Like the idea? What to see more or less of anything? Let us know and help us develop the series. We are also looking for a name to give it. Have any ideas?*
*You will receive full boasting rights if we use your idea, but that is all.
