The University of Glasgow Veterinary School has been gifted £1 million by a former graduate. After graduating in 1957, Tong Fatt Cheng served in the state veterinary service in Singapore before joining the diplomatic service as Singapore’s ambassador to Japan and then the People’s Republic of China. The gift will be used to establish the McIntyre International Research Fellowships to foster international collaboration and research into farm animal diseases.
The Royal Veterinary College has announced that a £1.25 million grant from the Wolfson Foundation will support the development of its new ‘One Health’ research and teaching facility in Hertfordshire. The facility aims to inspire and promote collaboration between scientists, clinicians and external partners to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to tackle global challenges and empower them to become the One Health leaders of the future.
