Full Description:
For our next seminar in the CAI seminar series, we are excited to announce international guest, Professor David J. Argyle, William Dick Chair of Veterinary Clinical Studies and Dean of Veterinary Medicine and Head of School, The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies - University of Edinburgh, joins us to present a special seminar:

Evolving Veterinary Research and Education Strategies in a Changing World:

Against a changing landscape in Higher Education, and the need to evolve a strategy for research and education, the University of Edinburgh embarked on a change programme in 2005 that brought together a major research provider (the Roslin Institute) and the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies into one entity, in order to create a step change in Veterinary Medicine. In this seminar, I will discuss the synergy this created and how the research is now mapping to the global sustainability goals. I will discuss our approach to both livestock and companion animal research and how these are being supported by investments in omics technologies, imaging capability and all underpinned by data science. Finally, I will discuss the educational programmes and how these have developed to support graduates equipped for a changing world.
