UFAW research scholarship for CBE student

Newcastle researchers awarded prestigious research scholarship to develop lifetime animal welfare assessment tools

The Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) has awarded a doctorate level Research Training Scholarship to Elena Armstrong of Newcastle University. With only one scholarship awarded internationally every three years, the award serves to highlight the quality of animal welfare research at Newcastle University. Under the supervision of a team of researchers led by Dr Tom Smulders (Institute of Neuroscience) and comprising Drs Tim Boswell and Jonathan Guy (also of Newcastle University) and Vicky Sandilands (Scotland's Rural College) Elena will investigate the lifetime welfare of chickens by testing whether changes in the birds’ brains reflect their levels of stress. For more information see the UFAW website  or for general enquires about animal welfare at Newcastle contact the University’s UFAW Link, Lucy Asher
