Ticket types

  • The Fellowship is about promoting scientific excellence and harnessing its expertise for the benefit of the profession as a whole. The day is an opportunity for the Fellowship to showcase its contribution and accordingly it is important that as many vets as possible get the chance to engage with it and be inspired by its contributions. As a result, Fellows are being strongly encouraged this year to bring another vet, who is not a Fellow, to the day.

  • If you are unable to bring another vet on the day you are invited to make a donation of £50. This donation will help recover some of the day’s costs – such as meeting the travel expenses of those participating in the Fellows of the Future competition. It should also assist in the running of other Fellowship outreach work.


We look forward to seeing you on the day.

About the Keynote Speaker

Fellowship Day 2019 speaker

Dr John (Iain) Glen BVMS PhD DVA FRCA MRCVS studied veterinary medicine at the University of Glasgow, graduating in 1963. He then spent a year as a veterinary surgeon at the University of Nairobi. Returning to the University of Glasgow in 1965, he took the first step towards pursuing a career as an academic researcher as he accepted a lecturer position in the Department of Small Animal Surgery. During this time he also claimed a specialist diploma in Veterinary Anaesthesia, paving the way for his lifelong research interests.

In 1972, Dr Glen joined ICI Pharmaceuticals’ anaesthetics research team – later AstraZeneca. Working there he discovered and developed Propofol – now one of the most widely used anaesthetics in the world. Its rapid action and freedom from residual effects contributed to it being classified in 2016 by the World Health Organisation as an “essential medicine”. It is estimated that well over 190 million people have received the drug. In recognition of this achievement he was awarded the Lasker – DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award in 2018. The award recognises the contributions of researchers who have made major advances in the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, or prevention of disease.
