Infectious Disease Dynamics

The stakes are high. Cattle TB is currently costing UK taxpayers 90 million a year to control. Badger culling, as a method to control TB in cattle, is highly controversial. The science base relating to cattle TB control is often misunderstood (sometimes wilfully). This talk will review the science and the UK policies as they stand today. When should a policy be called “science-based”? And does “science-informed” policy deliver what it appears to promise? >p> Invited discussant: Prof. James Wood (Cambridge), who will particularly address the issue of cattle controls.

This talk is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Seminar Series series.
