The wider impact of our research

The veterinary research conducted at Glasgow, within our research Institutes and the School of Veterinary Medicine, has had lasting impacts in animal welfare industry and charities, global health bodies and government policymakers and a broad range of commercial industry. This has been made possible by working with stakeholders in veterinary biotech & pharmaceutical industry, veterinarians 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. As part of the 2014 UK-wide Research Excellence Framework the impact of our research on the economy and society was assessed, with 82% of our submission being judged as outstanding (4*).
