Trustees of the Alborada Trust are active in support of veterinary research. At the present time grants have been awarded to the Royal Veterinary College and the School of Veterinary Medicine at Surrey University.
Research is being conducted in four different areas, the largest of which is, with the AHT, an effort to establish a much improved vaccine against the equine herpes virus, EHV-1. (Under review following closure of the AHT.)
The commitment of the Alborada Trust runs for the next five years and totals £1m.
