Following on from Liz’s arrival, we are delighted to announce that Lucy Jerram has now joined the DIAL team. Lucy is currently studying for a European Diploma in Bovine Health Management.

About working with DIAL, Lucy said:

“As a vet in practice I was constantly faced with decisions surrounding diagnostics and the use of antimicrobials, and it is an issue which I have always felt strongly about. I am excited to be able to contribute to this field through my PhD, and look forward to working with the rest of the DIAL team to help find solutions to some of the challenges that exist in refining the use of antimicrobials in livestock.”
