Professor Emeritus honoured for work in veterinary science

Professor Caroline Mansfield and Professor Emeritus Boyd Jones.

Professor Emeritus Boyd Jones has been honoured by the Australia/New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists.

At last month’s annual meeting, Professor Jones was the subject of the College Oration, an honour established in 1977 to give recognition to a veterinarian in Australia or New Zealand who has made a major contribution to veterinary science.

It takes the form of a short resume of the recipient’s work, the presentation of a medallion to the recipient and orator, followed by a suitable address by a guest speaker.

While the honour can be awarded every year, Professor Boyd is the first person to have been given an oration since 2009.

Professor Jones’ research interests are in small animal internal medicine, publishing more than 170 refereed papers in aspects of canine and feline medicine. He graduated from Massey and taught at the University of Melbourne until 1975, when he returned to Massey to become an associate professor and the Head of the Small Animal Clinic and Hospital. In 1997 Professor Jones accepted the Chair in Small Animal Clinical Studies at University College Dublin, Ireland.
