Brucellosis is often quoted as one of the world's most important zoonotic diseases. Outside a few of the most developed countries, it remains a substantial economic and social problem, with significant impacts on human and animal health. To discuss some of the latest research into and understanding of this disease, the 4th International Brucellosis Research Conference, organised by the Veterinary Laboratories Agency (vla), was held at the Royal Holloway College, University of London, in September.
