Prof Adrian Tordiffe, senior lecturer in veterinary pharmacology at the Faculty is no stranger to being in the limelight, either on his own or as part of interesting projects with other colleagues at the Faculty such as the intricate dental surgery he and Prof Gerhard Steenkamp performed on an elephant in Georgia in 2018, to remove its infected tusk. Or his intriguing work with cheetahs in captivity to ensure better health and proper care for them.
A researcher of note, Prof Tordiffe’s work is indeed paying off. This was confirmed in a quite rewarding way when on 17 July he was honoured with the South African Veterinary Association’s Research Award during its awards gala dinner at Emperors Palace.
This award is given to any veterinarian or group of veterinarians, for the best scientific article or series of articles, recently published in any scientific journal. Recipients of this award may be eligible for nomination for new original research.
