    The second award has been made to George Giles (pictured above), of Giles & Parsons Farm Vets, for his research on the development of veterinary fertility services that meet market demand - a qualitative study of seasonally calving herds in the UK.

    The MSD Animal Health Research Bursary for veterinary surgeons offers awards of up to £4,000 each. Each project has to be completed within one to two years and the veterinary practitioner proposals are judged by university academics to ensure independent assessment.

    Stephanie Small, veterinary advisor at MSD Animal Health comments: “It is a great pleasure to make the awards to these two veterinary surgeons. To complete research alongside a full-time job is a major achievement but a vital means of generating new, insightful clinical knowledge. These awards show how committed Sophie and George are to advancing research within the veterinary industry and increasing their skill sets - both goals that we fully support. Our aim is to encourage as many vets as possible to apply for the bursaries as we view our investment in research, and the pursuit of new knowledge, as essential to advancing veterinary knowledge.”

    Veterinary surgeon research bursary applications will open again in August. For further details go to the MSD Animal Health Research Bursary website at
