Nairobi - A university don will receive a prestigious award in Cairns, Australia next month for his work in the animal health discipline.

Dr Wafula Aleri, a lecturer at the Department of Clinical Studies, College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences at the University of Nairobi has been named this year’s winner of the Gustav Rosenberger Young Scientist Cattle award.

Aleri will receive the prestigious award at the Buiatriacs Conference will be held from July 26 to August 1.
