Expressions of interest

The Horserace Betting Levy Board (HBLB) provides some £1.5m of funding annually for the advancement of veterinary science and education. It has appointed a Veterinary Advisory Committee (VAC) to advise it on its veterinary interests, with the aim to improve the health and welfare of the racing or breeding Thoroughbred horse.

The VAC is comprised of scientists and veterinary clinicians able to provide expertise throughout the scope of the veterinary investment. The VAC is currently seeking to appoint 2 new members for 2013, with expertise to be able to interpret and assess research applications in either of the following areas:

  • Orthopaedics, musculoskeletal and bone biology, exercise physiology, endocrinology, genetics
  • Veterinary virology, immunology, molecular biology, microbiology, diagnostics, vaccines

Expressions of interest are invited. Potential candidates should be aware that VAC members are excluded from applying for HBLB funding due to the conflict of interest. The VAC usually meets in London twice a year, including one overnight stay.

For an informal discussion and further information on the role please contact Stephanie McIntosh, Veterinary Science & Education Manager at HBLB at or 0207 802 3885 before 30 November 2012.
