Global Foot and Mouth Disease Research Alliance (GFRA) Meeting, October 2015

ARS co-organized the Global Foot and Mouth Disease Research Alliance (GFRA) 2015 Science Meeting with partners from Australia, Vietnam, United Kingdom and South Africa that took place in October 2015 in Hanoi, Vietnam. The meeting was a great success with almost 200 researchers representing institutes from all regions of the world such as Africa, South and Southeast Asia, Europe and Eurasia, North America, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand. ARS worked closely with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to identify researchers for travel grants, which resulted in DTRA providing travel support for about 50 FMD experts from Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Caucasus and Central Asia to the meeting.
