General Description of the Research Project

Establishing a new system for infectious disease control in livestock and developing a safe meat production technology
Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) and other major livestock infectious diseases are causing export restrictions and decline of livestock productions. This project, in Thailand who aims to be the Kitchen of the World, applies experiences learned from controlling FMD outbreak in Miyazaki Prefecture. In cooperation with government agencies and veterinary universities, a multi-diagnostic system for major infectious livestock diseases and a food poisoning bacteria elimination technology from the poultry are to be developed, and an epidemic prevention system based on the disease dissemination mathematical model is to be established. Through these research and training programs, this project strives to foster experts who can contribute to livestock epidemic prevention in the globalized era.

Promoting a stable and sustainable livestock production and a safe meat supply
This project establishes technology for controlling livestock infectious diseases such as FMD in Thailand. Thailand, who plays a leading role in ASEAN, will influence the neighboring countries after implementing this technology that consequently contributes to a stable and safe livestock supply worldwide.
