STRUBI's foot and mouth vaccine candidate on TV

Professor Dave Stuart, co-director of the Structural Biology Division (STRUBI) at the WTCHG, was interviewed on the popular TV programme Dara O'Briain's Science Club on Thursday 29 August.

The interview concerns Professor Stuart's successful creation of a prototype synthetic foot and mouth vaccine, working with collaborators at the Diamond Light Source and the Institute of Animal Health in Pirbright, Surrey, to analyse the structure of the protein shell of the virus. Scientists Abhay Kotecha and Claudine Porta also feature in footage shot at STRUBI.
