USPoultry Calls for Research Proposals on Salmonella Infection

02 January 2014

US - The USPoultry Board Research Initiative has called for pre-proposals on research into systemic Salmonella infection in chickens and turkeys.

The research should also look at the relationship of Salmonella with the finished ground product.

The deadline for pre-proposal submission is 18 April 2014. For more information, click here. Go to, and click on 'Research' for complete instructions and deadlines.

The USPoultry Board Research Initiative was created by the Boards of USPoultry and the USPoultry Foundation to address current issues facing the poultry industry. The USPoultry Board Research Initiative operates alongside the current USPoultry research programme and augments the great success of the existing programme by focusing additional resources toward defined areas of research.

USPoultry and its Foundation operate a comprehensive research programme incorporating all phases of poultry and egg production and processing. Since the inception of the research programme, USPoultry has reinvested more than $24 million dollars into the industry in the form of research grants, with the International Poultry Expo as the primary source for the funding. More than 50 universities and federal and state facilities have received grants over the years.
