Researchers in the College of MVLS are conscious of the potential impacts resulting from their research that benefit the wider society and economy. Here we have summarised some of the ways in which research from across the College has influenced a broad range of healthcare services; improved animal welfare and conservation efforts; informed policy, both home and abroad; and stimulated the local and national economy.
