The article focuses on Martin Shirley, director of the Institute of Animal Health in Great Britain. He is a world expert on avian coccidiosis and the Eimeria parasites that cause disease in poultry. His research led to the development of Paracox vaccine used to protect chickens against coccidiosis. He is a visiting professor at University of Liverpool and Royal Veterinary College in England, and Guangdong Academy of Agricultural Sciences in China.

    Coccidiosis is a disease of almost universal importance in Poultry production. The subclinical form of coccidiosis has most significant economic impact due to impaired growth rate and feed conversion. Some factors such as: age, size of flock, season, etc., may effect on severity of this disease....
