Introduction from Professor Dame Anna Dominiczak, Vice Principal and Head of College of MVLS
Welcome to the Winter 2018 edition of the MVLS College Newsletter. At this time of year, it is wonderful to reflect on the year and the success that has been driven by the excellent work from across the College.
The College topped the tables, ranking 1st in Dentistry and Nursing, and 2nd in Medicine and Veterinary Medicine in the recently published Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019. Well done to everyone for your contribution towards these marvellous results!
October saw the first cohort of graduates from the University of Glasgow Singapore awarded a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Nursing, a joint degree delivered in partnership by the School of Nursing & Health Care and the Singapore Institute of Technology.
A successful £15M pan-Scotland University of Glasgow-led bid to Innovate UK will bring an artificial intelligence health research centre, to be known as the Industrial Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research and Digital Diagnostics (iCAIRD). This is an exciting development and further positions Scotland’s ability to be a global leader in precision medicine.
I am delighted that the new Institute of Health and Wellbeing will be known as the Clarice Pears Building, thanks to a £5M donation to the University of Glasgow. The generous support of Pears Foundation will help us achieve our vision to improve health and reduce health inequalities on a local, national and global scale.
We look forward to welcoming you to College Christmas Council on 20th December 2018 from 3-5pm in the Atrium of the Wolfson Medical School Building. It will be wonderful to celebrate our successes and the festive season over refreshments. If you have not already done so, please register.
Last, but by no means least, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff, students and supporters for your commitment and hard work throughout 2018, and to wish you and yours a fabulous festive season.
