Dr Philippa Yam

  • Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Biosciences (Veterinary Science & Education )
  • Associate (Institute of Biodiversity Animal Health & Comparative Medicine)

Biography

I am currently Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Science and Education at the School of Veterinary Medicine in Glasgow. I graduated from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh in 1992 having also intercalated with BSc Vet Sci Hons. I moved across to Glasgow and after an Internship at the School of Veterinary Medicine, where I gained a Certificate in Small Animal Medicine (RCVS) and a Certificate in Small Animal Nutrition (City and Guilds), I undertook a PhD in the Medical Faculty. I started my Lectureship here at Glasgow in 1998 and for many years was a clinician in the Small Animal Hospital specialising in small animal gastroenterology and internal medicine.

My job has evolved over the years and now as Senior Lecturer I have many roles as both an academic and research scientist. I am passionate about the health and welfare of our student population and sit on committees to optimise policy and practice in relation to this, I teach to various year groups, carry out research as well as undertaking various administrative duties.

Current position and roles:

Chief Adviser of Studies

EMS (extra mural Studies) Co-ordinator

Accreditation Team Champion

Chair of Hardship Fund

I sit on many other committees including Admissions, Progress, Programme Board and Staff Student Liaison committee.


Research interests

My research interests are in small animal nutrition, obesity and physical activity and I have published extensively in these areas (see below). I am particularly interested in pathogenesis of obesity and novel methodology for educating key stakeholders in tackling the small animal obesity epidemic. I recently produced a short film entitled ‘Fat Dog Slim’ available to view at https://youtu.be/Ta2k9voS2po.   I enjoy interdisciplinary research and always keen to collaborate so feel free to contact me to discuss research proposals and ideas.
