Iain leads BioSS activities in the area of Animal Health and Welfare. As part of this. He manages BioSS consultancy inputs to the Scottish Executive 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 our clients have included the Institute for Animal Health, Scottish Natural Heritage, the Deer Commission Scotland and a number of commercial companies.

Iain's team of BioSS consultants and himself 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. If you work in this field, and believe that you need inputs from trained statisticians and mathematicians, please feel free to contact me to discuss your needs.
