Science Media Centre

The Science Media Centre is an independent press office for science, providing the national news media with access to the best science when stories hit the headlines. There are relatively few veterinary scientists and experts on the SMC list.  We encourage you to sign up!  The SMC is completely independent (it has a wide range of funders) and gives excellent support and training to those that sign up to its database.
