INSPIRE

The aim of the INSPIRE Scheme is to encourage an interest in research amongst our Veterinary students and highlight how research can enhance our everyday lives as qualified veterinarians.

The next INSPIRE Research Showcase is taking place at 5.30pm on Tuesday October 22nd in the Physics Building.

We are delighted that the new Dean of Health Sciences, Professor Jane Norman, will be giving the keynote lecture in this showcase. In addition, we will have talks from medical, dental and veterinary students. Please come along and join us for an interesting evening followed by drinks and nibbles.

INSPIRE is a national initiative coordinated by the Academy of Medical sciences and supported with funding from the Wellcome Trust. Our scheme is also linked to the INSPIRE Scheme for medical and dental students that is running across Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter and Plymouth. Therefore there will be plenty of opportunities to interact with medical and dental researchers and students across the four partner universities.

The scheme consists of a broad range of events, activities, opportunities and even prize rewards.

The INSPIRE Scheme for the Bristol Veterinary School is being led by Professor Linda Wooldridge and Professor Mick Bailey. If you have any questions/comments then please feel free to contact one of us directly, we would be very happy to hear from you and receive any feedback/suggestions that you may have.
