Faculty of Science – University of Sydney

The Poultry Research Foundation was one of the original Foundations established within the University of Sydney by the University Senate, in October 1958.

The purpose of the Foundation is to provide an interface between The University of Sydney and the Australian poultry and allied industries.
The Foundation sponsors industry-related research, assists in the training of scientific personnel and acts in an industrial liaison capacity.

The Foundation’s contribution to the development of the Australian poultry and stockfeed industries has been achieved through research programs directed at achieving better understanding of nutrition, health, welfare, food safety and other fields important to the industries.

The Foundation has regularly hosted workshops, seminars and symposia. Each year in February the PRF hosts the Australian Poultry Science Symposium (APSS) in collaboration with the Australian Branch of the World’s Poultry Science Association.
