The three year project that Fera is leading is entitled 'Modelling systems for managing bee disease: the epidemiology of European foulbrood' in will be completed in partnership with Dr Ed Feil at the University of Bath, Professor Stephen Rushton at Newcastle University and Professor Matt Keeling at the University of Warwick.
