MSD Animal Health is reminding veterinary surgeons that the deadline to apply for one of its £4000 2018 research bursaries is drawing near.

There are three awards on offer: two ruminant bursaries and one companion animal bursary. Applications must be in by 30th November 2018. 

Each project should be completed within one to two years and the vet practitioner proposals will be judged by university academics to ensure independent assessment.

The companion animal research bursary will be assessed by the University of Nottingham Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine and the ruminant research bursary applications will be assessed by academic staff from the University of Bristol School of Veterinary Science. 

Michelle Townley, veterinary advisor at MSD Animal Health (pictured right) said: "New knowledge and good research skills form the lifeblood of the industry so we’re keen to get as many applications as possible as part of our commitment to encouraging research in the veterinary industry."
