Due to flourishing demand for our services, we would like to meet another enthusiastic, personable and talented veterinary anatomic pathologist that wants to work alongside our fantastic administrative and technical laboratory teams.

Bridge Pathology, is moving into the next phase of its development as part of Synlab-VPG group. VPG Histology is a veterinary diagnostic histopathology and immunohistochemistry company set in a pleasant part of Bristol, UK, dedicated to providing the very highest quality diagnostic surgical pathology services to our veterinary community. While the name has changed you will still find a highly collegial and friendly atmosphere alongside an international group of ten enthusiastic and hugely talented anatomic pathologists. Our caseload is mostly composed of companion animal species, with increasing numbers of exotic animal submissions also being received. A large proportion of our clients are in referral veterinary practice, which attests to the quality of our reporting and the exacting standards that we expect of all our pathologists and laboratory staff. Despite the parliamentary impasse the number of cases from our European neighbours is increasing, with recent doubling of our case load from Germany. We also provide the diagnostic anatomic pathology services for two of the UK veterinary schools.

We work ever more closely with our clinical pathology colleagues throughout the rest of Synlab-VPG, and have regular case discussions with them. Many of our pathologists also act as external examiners and visiting lecturers at UK veterinary schools. One of our pathologists is an examiner for the ECVP and another is an examiner for the Royal College of Pathologists.

We are keen to use our case material for clinical research. The aim is to collaborate in clinically-driven studies to add to an evidence base for diagnosis, prognostication and treatment of veterinary patients. We have excellent links with the veterinary schools and other research institutes throughout the UK and are currently participating in a number of different research projects. We also supervise and assist with undergraduate and postgraduate research projects for universities throughout the UK. You are encouraged to spend up to 10% of your time on research or business development activities within the diagnostic pathology rota.

Applicants with additional research training in veterinary pathology or a related subject would be desirable and due to our European caseload, fluency in German or another European language would be fantastic. As ever, baking skills would be an advantage, but the ability to make a decent cup of tea/coffee is essential.

MPhil in Molecular Veterinary Pathology,

Department of  Veterinary Medicine, University of Cambridge.

Funded by BSAVA PetSavers.

We are seeking a talented and enthusiastic veterinarian who wishes to gain experience in veterinary pathology research, to pursue a one year MPhil project in the Department of Veterinary Medicine, University of Cambridge. This is a unique opportunity to gain experience at the interface between anatomic pathology, machine learning, and small animal endocrinology.

The project: The islet microenvironment in canine and feline diabetes mellitus: An unexplored therapeutic target. This project will characterise the microenvironment of canine and feline pancreatic islets in health and disease, in order to identify potential targets for novel immunomodulatory therapeutic approaches in canine and feline diabetes mellitus. A range of histochemical, immunohistochemical and immunofluorescent techniques will be undertaken, and pathological assessment will be carried out in parallel with machine learning approaches. The project will involve prospective sampling of pancreata from deceased dogs and cats, providing fresh tissue for molecular and genetic analyses.

The person: We seek a bright and motivated individual to undertake this project. You will be registered with, or eligible to apply for registration with, the RCVS. This studentship is available to students who qualify for Home/EU fees. Further information here: https://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/finance/fees *Note the University has confirmed that students from the European Union starting courses in England in the 2019/20 academic year will continue to be eligible for home/EU fees.

The supervisory team: The primary supervisor of this project is Dr Kate Hughes, a research active veterinary pathologist. Should the scholar wish to subsequently apply for a pathology residency program, it is envisaged that completion of this program of study would be commensurate with the European College of Veterinary Pathologists requirement that, before registration, trainees have undertaken a prior year of training in a field relevant to veterinary pathology. Whilst a stand-alone project, this research is also embedded within the Canine Diabetes Genetics Partnership (CDGP) and the co-supervisory team includes Prof Lucy Davison, of the Royal Veterinary College and Oxford University. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will gain exposure to canine genetics research through attendance at quarterly meetings of the CDGP and visits to the Davison laboratory. Supervision of machine learning approaches will be under the tutelage of Dr John Wills, University of Cambridge.

Funding: Funding will cover the successful candidate’s stipend at £17,757 and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.
