- An ICAR scheme on "Development of combined vaccine for Haemorrhagic septicemia and Black Quarter" was completed from 2005 to 2008.
- A NADP Project on " Novel diagnostics and vaccine delivery system for emerging and economically important bacterial and viral diseases affecting small ruminants" is functioning in this unit from 2010 – 2011.
- A NADP Project on " Novel diagnostics and vaccine delivery system for emerging and economically important bacterial and viral diseases affecting small ruminants" is functioning in this unit from 2011 – 2012.
On Going Scheme
