The UK research institute at the centre of the foot-and-mouth disease outbreak two years ago has been given £100m to build new laboratories.

英国研究机构获得100万英镑建设新实验大楼,自口蹄疫爆发以来该机构一直在对其进行研究。

The head of the Institute for Animal Health (IAH) at Pirbright in Surrey, said that the state-of-the-art facilities are as safe as they can be.

Research at the new laboratory will focus on controlling the spread of diseases as a result of climate change.

Scientists will also combat the spread of diseases from animals to humans.

The episode two years ago drew attention to the state of the facilities at the site - which one report described as "shabby(破旧的) and dilapidated(荒废的)".

According to the institute's director, Martin Shirley, the new investment will enable him to build laboratories that are world class and meet the highest standards of biosecurity.

"What I hope is that it will give confidence to all our stakeholders that here at Pirbright we have the world's leading experts. That it will be state-of-the-art and it will be as safe as it can possibly be."

Research at the new laboratory will focus on controlling the spread of diseases as a result of climate change, dealing1 with the growing threat to food security and combating diseases that spread from animals to humans such as swine flu and bird flu.

"There is an increasing recognition that diseases won't go away," says Professor Shirley.

Globally, a new animal disease is said to appear roughly every two years. Three quarters of these are viral(滤过性毒菌的) or have some potential to spread to humans.

"I think there is a recognition that research in this area is important for the wellbeing of the UK".
