Introduction from Professor Dame Anna Dominiczak, Vice Principal and Head of College of MVLS
Welcome to the Autumn 2018 edition of the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences (MVLS) newsletter. It has been a very busy and exciting summer for the College, with many visitors, including the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport, Jeane Freeman, Ivan McKee MSP, Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation, the Rt Honorable Lord Henley, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Dr Ian Campbell, Interim Executive Chair of Innovate UK, and Professor Victor Dzau, President of the United States National Academy of Medicine, to name just a few.
I would like to congratulate all new Professors across the College. This is a fantastic achievement and reflects colleagues’ outstanding contribution to teaching and research. The inaugural lectures will begin in early 2019.
Many congratulations to the Glasgow Dental School on being named Top Dental School in the UK. This is a well-deserved accolade and reflects the commitment and enthusiasm of staff within the Dental School.
Well done to the MVLS College team on the launch of "Research Impact: Making a Difference", the first online course on impact, sharing expertise from across the University of Glasgow. This follows on from our success in the BBSRC Excellence with Impact competition and continues our journey to maximise research impact.
I would like to extend a warm invitation to all to join me at College Christmas Council on Thursday 20th December from 3pm – 5pm in the Atrium, Wolfson Medical School Building. This is an excellent opportunity to celebrate successes and the festive season over refreshments. Please take the time to nominate colleagues for Service Excellence Awards, MVLS Engagement Awards, and submit your entries to the Images with Impact competition.
I am delighted with the progress the College is making to drive forward our reputation in teaching and research excellence. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued hard work and commitment.
