The 2nd Annual Research Highlights day 30th Nov 2016
RVC Research Highlights aims to bring together RVC staff, students, friends, families and the local community to share the most up-to-date findings of RVC research, and explore their wider impact on the world. RVC Researchers presented the results of their research from 2016 on interactive stands and gave you the opportunity to find out what life as a research scientist at RVC is like.

In collaboration with :
The 1st annual Research Highlights event at the Royal Veterinary College organised by RVC’s Researcher Association.
On 30th of November 2015 for the first time we organised Research Highlights event, a day packed with interactive and interesting sessions for our researchers to get together, share and celebrate the achievements of their last year. We would like to thank all of the researchers at the RVC for their contributions that made it possible for us to organise this event, which we hope to make an annual event in the RVC calendar. Today we witnessed the robust diversity of our researchers and their achievements and celebrated their efforts by showing our support. After a serious competition among our researchers, two winners were chosen by the vote of the audience. The Best Oral Presentation prize kindly provided by Royal Society of Biology went to Dr. Elisa Lewis given her talk on :
A mixed methods study of the mental health and wellbeing of different professional student populations.
The best interactive stand prize was won by First past the winning post: RVC leading the way in racehorse research team led by Dr. Sarah Rosanowski (Other team members: Dr Anna Walker, Dr Kristien Verheyen, Dr Tom Witte, Dr Thilo Pfau and Prof Renate Weller).
We would like to thank Research Support Office (Prof. Jonathan Elliott and Mrs. Liz Wilkinson), Event management/Marketing unit (Mrs. Jennie Winterbottom and Mr. Jack Sisterson) and Human Resources (Mrs. Sylvia A. Sidoli and Mrs. Rebecca Costello) for supporting us throughout the last year without which putting this event together would have not been possible. Hope this new event be the first of many more to come!
