After a seven-year hiatus, the RVC podcast returns with Dominic Barfield taking the reins and talking to the researchers at all stages in their careers about the work that they are doing at the UK’s oldest veterinary school. Continuing from the back catalogue from Dr Mattias Kleinz (episode 1 to 20) and Dr Mark Cleasby (episode 20-50) Dom with the help of Brian Cox will get you back up to speed with how the Royal Veterinary College, the University of London's veterinary school, is pushing the frontiers in veterinary medicine and basic science. We will provide you with an insight to the current research being undertaken and those dedicated researchers in the pursuit of answering those questions to benefit animal health and welfare, today, tomorrow and beyond. We hope that you enjoy.

    56 Rowena

    For Episode 56 we talk to Dr Rowena Packer who is a BBSRC Research Fellow here at the RVC.

    We discuss what led her interest in perusing animal welfare science, and how she came to do her PhD at the RVC and what this has led to along the way.  Her research into breed confirmation and why people might choose those breeds is on-going and fascinating.
