Dear Colleague,

RCVS Knowledge, the charity partner of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) in the UK, launched the 2021/2022 Plowright Prize last month. Nominations are now invited of individuals who have made a significant impact on the control, management and eradication of infectious diseases of animals.

The £75,000 Plowright Prize is open to any veterinary surgeon, veterinary nurse or research scientist working in the UK, Europe or the Commonwealth whose contribution demonstrates animal, humanitarian or economic benefit.

The 2019/2020 winner was Professor Ivan Morrison, who is Professor of Immunology at The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh, for his research into creating a cost-effective vaccine for the cattle disease East Coast Fever.

This year we are hoping to raise awareness of the prize throughout Europe and the Commonwealth countries, so we would be extremely grateful if you would help us promote it. If you can do this, please let us know, and we will provide you with communications materials.  

You can find more information about the Plowright Prize on our website: https://knowledge.rcvs.org.uk/grants/available-grants/the-plowright-prize-2021/
