Dear Dr. Duffus,
I am a Masters student at University of Edinburgh, carrying out a dissertation project on the global surveillance of amphibian ranaviruses. My supervisor is Stephen Price (University College London).
I am trying to collect information about methods used to sample and test for the viruses, and about how much testing is being carried out worldwide.
If you or any of your colleagues are currently carrying out laboratory testing for amphibian ranaviruses, please would you consider either filling out an online questionnaire and/or forwarding this email to someone else who may do so? The link is as follows:
Amphibian ranavirus laboratory questionnaire Survey
Web survey powered by SurveyMonkey.com. Create your own online survey now with SurveyMonkey's expert certified FREE templates.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the questionnaire, or the project.
