Eric phone Apr16 869Eric phone Apr16 873It was fantastic to see so many old and new faces at the 2016 BAVP annual meeting which was held at the University of Bristol on the 14-15 April in the Wills Memorial Building and Museum & Art Gallery. Attendees represented the breadth of parasitologists in the UK including Universities, animal health companies, SMEs and the APHA.

The prize of £50 for best student presentation was awarded by majority decision of the committee to Johnathan Love of Strathclyde University for his talk on “Probability distributions of faecal egg count data and their impact on investigating anthelmintic efficacy”. Johnathan was congratulated, as were the other student presenters, Marisol Collins, Ludovica Beltrame and Catherine McLeonard, for their excellent presentations.
