The Faculty of Veterinary Science's annual Faculty Day has once again proved to be one of the highlights of the Faculty's calendar. It provided an opportunity to showcase high-level research outputs and provided researchers with a chance to share their high-level research with peers, colleagues and students. The event was also attended by veterinary pharmaceutical companies who displayed and exhibited their products. A definite highlight of the event was the Sir Arnold Theiler Memorial Lecture presented by Prof Lucille Blumberg, Deputy Director of the National Institute for Communicable Diseases, a division of the National Health Laboratory Service.
