IAH to Become Pirbright Institute13 September 2012
UK - From 4th October, the Institute for Animal Health (IAH) will be renamed The Pirbright Institute.
The Institute is creating a state-of-the-art Institute on a single campus at Pirbright, Surrey, UK. The Institute will
continue to carry out its world leading surveillance and research into virus diseases of livestock and viruses
that spread from animals to humans.
It will have the facilities and expertise to meet the known and emerging virus threats of the 21st century. Many staff have now transferred from our Compton Laboratory in Berkshire, UK where a move and decommissioning programme will continue for the next few years.
At Pirbright, the first of several new buildings, a high containment laboratory for 150 staff, is nearing completion. The new identity marks the beginning of a brand new phase in the 100 year history of the Institute.
