Biographical / Historical

The Shaw Committee was a Working Group established in February 1992 by the AFRC to undertake a review of the role of IAPGR in AFRC animal science strategy and to advise on the organisational structure and facilities needed at IAPGR's animal research programme. The formation of the Group followed on from the report of the 1992 Visiting Group, which questioned the valur of the present IAPGR structure of sites at both Babraham and Edinburgh. In October 1992 the Report of the Shaw Review was considered by AFRC who in principle approved the recommendation that Cambridge and Edinburgh Research Stations should develop as two separate institutes with distinctive remits and complementary research programmes.
