Dr Valentina Busin

  • Veterinary Clinician in Disease Investigation (Veterinary Pathology, Public Health & Disease Investigation)
  • Associate (Institute of Biodiversity Animal Health & Comparative Medicine)

Biography

Valentina graduated from the University of Turin, Italy, in 2007 and worked in mixed and farm animal practices for 3 years, before undertaking a farm animal residency and obtaining the Diploma for the European College of Small Ruminant Health Management in 2014. She subsequently completed a mechanical engineering PhD program jointly between Moredun and Heriot-Watt University. She is a European and RCVS-recognised specialist in small ruminant medicine and is currently a clinician in disease investigation at the University of Glasgow, working as a farm animal clinician and managing the farm animal post mortem service in collaboration with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC Ayr). Valentina has lectured nationally and internationally and authored multiple scientific papers. Her interests focus on small ruminant medicine and production, farm animal disease diagnostics (with a specific interest for on-farm investigations and point-of-care testing) and gross pathology for surveillance purposes.
