Humane Slaughter Association announces two research training scholarships

The Humane Slaughter Association (HSA) has awarded two research training scholarships, each for three-year research projects, at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and the University of Bristol.

The HSA’s research training scholarship scheme is part of the charity’s on-going promotion of high quality science likely to lead to significant advances in animal welfare during transport, marketing and slaughter. The research projects will focus on the advancement of humane slaughter of cattle, turkeys, ducks and geese.

Carlos Rebelo will undertake research at the RVC to assess dry electrical stunning systems for poultry, and aims to develop new constant current stunners or electrode types for turkeys, ducks and geese in small-scale production.

Awal Fuseini’s project at the University of Bristol is to develop a humane, safe and Halal-compliant method of pre-cut stunning for cattle using a new type of stunning – Single Pulse Ultra-high Current (SPUC).

The awards are open to veterinary or science graduates for three-year programmes of research leading to a degree at doctorate level.
