Professor Gary England, Foundation Dean & Professor of Comparative Veterinary Reproduction at the School of Veterinary Medicine & Science said: The School has a philosophy of integrating research and clinical training within its undergraduate programme. This new funding offers two significant developments for postgraduate research. It will develop research and clinical excellence in veterinary-qualified staff and engage veterinarians from clinical practice into research through the innovative Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Doctor of Veterinary Science programme".
