Earlier this month, the animal welfare team were delighted to host the Jeanne Marchig Trustees on a visit to the R(D)SVS. The day was a huge success and we were able to demonstrate to the Trustees the advancement of animal welfare within the teaching programmes here, as well as presenting details about our projects and collaborations overseas.
“The Trustees of the Marchig Trust during their visit were delighted to learn of the work and progress being made by the team of the JMICAWE at home and abroad. In addition, the Trustees were impressed by the teaching facilities available for the students at the Royal (Dick) Vet, particularly the animal alternative models within the small and large animal clinical skills development areas which replaces the need for animals and gives students confidence as they develop their skills prior to contact with animals. Through its grant giving, the Marchig Trust always seeks to make a real difference in support of the animal kingdom. The Trust's considerable grant to Edinburgh University to establish the JMICAWE is doing just that"Les Ward, Chairman of the Marchig Trustees
