AHDB Pork sponsors a number of PhD students to carry out in-depth scientific research into pig production issues. 

PigletProjects cover a wide range of issues, including investigating novel ways to diagnose disease, improving sow udder quality traits and overcoming light pig syndrome.

They generally run for three years, with regular opportunities during that time for the

PhD students to discuss progress both with their peers and AHDB Pork to help ensure projects cover all relevant questions.
