About this Event

Professor Alan Wilson graduated from Glasgow University in 1987 having studied Veterinary Medicine and an intercalated BSc in Physiology. He subsequently undertook a PhD in the Anatomy Department at Bristol University where he studied the mechanical basis of tendon injury. He went on to work as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate and then as a lecturer.

Alan moved to the Royal Veterinary College in 1996 where he now holds the post of Professor of Locomotor Biomechanics and leader of the Locomotion (Muscle, Tendon and Biomechanics) Research Group.

The Sir William Weipers Memorial Lecture series was instigated in 1976 in recognition of the role that Sir William Weipers played in the establishment and development of veterinary medicine at the University of Glasgow.

The lecture will be followed by an informal drinks reception in the Mary Stewart Building at the conclusion of Professor Wilson’s presentation.
