SUAT research team signed the first twinning agreement between OIE certified laboratories.
On April 1, 2011 began the agreement between the research group led by Prof. JM Sanchez-Vizcaino (reference laboratory of the OIE for African Swine Fever and African Horse Sickness) and the NationalVeterinary Research Institute for Virology and Microbiology (NRIVVaM) in Russia.
This twinning project will seek to improve the diagnostic capabilities of NRIVVaM in African Swine Fever at a level comparable to the standards of the OIE RL.
Dr José Manuel Sánchez-Vizcaino gave a seminar the last 18th of March in Bellaterra after visiting CReSA. He talked about the current epidemiological situation of the African swine fever virus (ASFV) in Africa, the Caucasus and the Russian Federation.

Bourgelat’s genius did not stop there. As a result of his fruitful collaboration with surgeons in Lyon, he was also the first scientist who dared to suggest that studying animal biology and pathology would help to improve our understanding of human biology and pathology. 2011 will also mark the 250th anniversary of the concept of comparative pathobiology, without which modern medicine would never have emerged.
Therefore, it is not just the anniversary of the creation of veterinary training that we should be celebrating in France in 2011. The entire world should join with us in celebrating our veterinary profession, which has been working to improve both animal and human health for the past 250 years.
We hereby propose that 2011 should be declared:
