Dr Iain McKendrick

I am the lead on Topic 2 (Improving Veterinary Surveillance Strategy) in EPIC 3. I am a statistician, mathematical modeller and specialist in animal health and welfare applications. In my role at BioSS, I manage BioSS consultancy inputs to the Scottish Government Environment and Rural Affairs Department Research Programme 2: "Profitable and Sustainable Agriculture – Animals", as well as consultancy contracts relating to animal science from other organisations. In recent years BioSS clients have included the Institute for Animal Health, Scottish Natural Heritage, the Deer Commission Scotland and a number of commercial companies. I and my team of BioSS consultants have extensive experience in the design and analysis of epidemiological and clinical studies relating to animal health and welfare, using both statistical and mathematical modelling techniques.
