Haryana, Maryland Universities Tie Up to Develop Bird Flu Vaccine
The Haryana Agriculture University, Hissar Monday tied up with the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources of the University of Maryland to conduct joint research for developing a vaccine to combat bird (avian) flu.

The research between both universities will also be for other poultry related diseases.

Announcing the tie-up, the minister for economic development of the government of Prince George's County, Patricia Hayers-Parker, said that the patent of the vaccine developed by the joint research would be held by both universities.

She said that a Japanese company would be associated for mass production of the vaccine to save people from the deadly bird flu virus.

Scientists from both universities have already worked on plans for future research, she said.

The proposal for a joint research programme between both universities was mooted in June this year during the visit of Haryana finance minister Birender Singh to Maryland.

She said that there was scope for promoting trade and commerce between Maryland and Haryana.
