MSD Animal Health awards vet surgeons with ruminant research bursary

Veterinary surgeon research bursary applications will open again in August

MSD Animal Health has awarded two veterinary surgeons with ruminant research bursaries from its 2019 applications. The first award has been made to Jonathan Hobbs BVetMed DBR MRCVS of North Park Veterinary Group, Devon, for his research into current practices employed by sheep farmers using anthelmintics in the South West of England. The second award has been made to Dr Simon Archer MRCVS from the University of Surrey for his research into lameness and mastitis prevalence in the same UK diary herds.

Stephanie Small, veterinary advisor at MSD Animal Health comments: “We’re excited about both these research projects as the subjects are highly topical and the ruminant veterinary industry will benefit from a deeper knowledge of the respective areas. These projects reveal a commitment from Jonathan and Simon to advancing practical research within the industry and our aim is to encourage as many vets as possible to apply for the bursaries as we view investment in research as essential to advancing veterinary knowledge.”

The MSD Animal Health Research Bursary for veterinary surgeons offers awards of up to £4,000 each. Each project has to be completed within one to two years and the veterinary practitioner proposals are judged by university academics to ensure independent assessment.

Veterinary surgeon research bursary applications will open again in August. For further details go to the MSD Animal Health Research Bursary website.
