Support Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences
The College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences brings together internationally-renowned experts in order to advance research in medical, veterinary and life sciences.
Our collaborative, interdisciplinary approach means we can study processes at every level from genes, to cells, organs, individuals, populations, and ecosystems.
As a strategically important centre for cancer research and a major centre for research into a range of diseases and conditions from heart disease and arthritis to malaria and rabies, our high quality research is used across the UK and internationally to improve human and animal health and quality of life.

The Paul O’Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, the University of Glasgow' s world-class leukaemia researchers are now based in a purpose-built laboratory, the Paul O'Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre, at Gartnavel hospital.
Our current research at the Paul O’Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre includes projects in myeloid and lymphoid forms of leukaemia and in both adult and childhood leukaemia.
Your donations are supporting Paul O’Gorman PhD students, research technicians, state-of-the art equipment and expansion of our research team to satellite research accommodation at the Wolfson Wohl Cancer Research Centre. Every year we recruit more staff, present our work at highly prestigious conferences and publish an ever increasing number of high quality papers.

The David Livingstone Fund in Global Health and Biodiversity
Global increases in the prevalence and spread of infectious disease have demonstrated the role of the environment in driving epidemics in human and animal populations.
In the developing world infectious diseases are still the leading cause of mortality, affecting the most impoverished and neglected communities where the burden of infectious diseases is often severely underestimated.
Impoverished tropical areas, in particular, continue to suffer substantial human and animal losses from infectious diseases such as malaria, rabies, sleeping sickness and other parasitic and viral infections, including many that have long been eradicated from developed countries.
Further to this, the emergence of new diseases and an increasing incidence of drug resistance in pathogens and vectors mean that tackling the symptoms of infectious diseases can be hampered.
Education makes a huge difference to people’s lives. Countless students have been able to study at Glasgow due to the generosity and foresight of people who have supported them. A scholarship is a gift with great impact that will resonate into the future and for many of our supporters the ability to help individuals to achieve their potential is a very rewarding experience.
Talent Scholarships are aimed at supporting excellent students who could otherwise face financial difficulties studying at University. They help to ensure that Glasgow continues to attract students of ability and potential from a broad socio-economic base throughout the UK. You can name a full Talent Scholarship with a gift of £1,000 per annum for 3-5 years.
