Introduction from Professor Dame Anna Dominiczak, Vice Principal and Head of College of MVLS

Welcome to the Spring 2018 edition of the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences (MVLS) newsletter. I am delighted to present our first newsletter of 2018 and highlight some of our excellent achievements across the College.

Many congratulations to Professor Jeremy Bagg, Head of the Dental School, and Professor Sally-Ann Cooper, Professor of Learning Disabilities who were both awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours list. These are well deserved and reflective of their outstanding contributions.  

It was great to see so many colleagues attend MVLS College Christmas Council in December and celebrate successes of 2017. Congratulations to all who received an award for their accomplishments in teaching and research.

In January 2018, we hosted the First Minister on a visit to our Imaging Centre of Excellence  (ICE) to show her first-hand the importance of ICE to Scotland as a future global centre of excellence for precision medicine. The First Minister was pleased to meet some of our industry partners and find out about our plans since being  awarded the BEIS Science and Innovation Audit for Precision Medicine in Scotland.

The Institute of Health and Wellbeing has been awarded the Athena SWAN Gold award, the first Gold Award for the University. This has been achieved through hard work and sustained effort and it is an achievement we are very proud of.

The 2018 Inaugural Lectures are now underway and we would like to congratulate Professor Susan Jamieson, Professor Peter Uhlhaas and Professor Helen Walden who have already successfully delivered their lectures. The inaugural lectures are an opportunity for colleagues to come together and celebrate the exciting research going on within the College. Professor Craig Melville, Professor Heather Ferguson and Professor Simon Milling are scheduled to deliver their lectures shortly and all are encouraged to attend and support.

We were delighted to welcome two new tenants, BioClavis and Canon Medical Research Europe Ltd to the Clinical Innovation Zone at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital campus. We look forward to working with our many industry partners and NHS colleagues to further develop the triple helix relationship between academia, the NHS and industry for the benefit of patients and the economy of Scotland.

Once again, 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 dedication. I look forward to seeing what we will achieve in the year ahead.

Best wishes,


Professor Dame Anna Dominiczak signature
