Peter Clegg, Professor of Musculoskeletal Biology at Great Britain's University of Liverpool School of Veterinary Science, has been awarded the inaugural LitoVet Scientific Award from the Animal Health Trust (AHT).
The award recognizes the person or group whose clinical or scientific work has made a substantial difference to the equine veterinary world. Professor Clegg was announced as this year's recipient at the Trust's Equestrian Aards gala dinner held in London last week.
Professor Clegg said: “I am absolutely delighted and honored to receive the award. It is recognition for the efforts of a large number of highly talented individuals that I have been extremely fortunate to work with over the last 10 years.
“Research is very much a team endeavor and this award recognizes the efforts of numerous PhD students, research assistants, and academic and veterinary colleagues who have contributed to the research which I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in.”
