The wider impact of our research

Virus research at Glasgow has had lasting clinical and veterinary impacts by working with stakeholders in biotech & pharmaceutical industry, healthcare practitioners, diagnostic services and farmers nationally and internationally. Our scientists and clinicians have provided consultancy, contract research and collaborative research that has delivered research findings into real world solutions in both veterinary and human clinical medicine. 

In 2014, the UK-wide Research Excellence Framework assessed the impact of University of Glasgow research on the economy and society, and in December 2014 reported that 77% of our submission to Clinical Medicine and 82% of our submission to Veterinary research units were judged as outstanding (4*).

The CVR submitted impacts to both these areas, summaries of which you can read below, together with other more recent examples of ongoing impactful collaborations.
