Professor George Gunn is the Director of the ambitious SRUC Rural and Veterinary Innovation Centre based in Inverness. His primary skills are in marrying science with people, and he seeks to help sustain rural communities through the work of RAVIC.
Previously George was Head of Veterinary Epidemiology also based at Scotland’s Rural College in Inverness. He is Professor of Population Medicine and Zoonoses and has helped win over £50 million for SRUC and collaborating institutions. George has acted as lead for many research projects both in Scotland, UK and Internationally and has many research publication reports and with presentations around the world.
His range of expertise includes livestock disease control with an overarching interest in population medicine and the dynamics of infectious inter-herd diseases and zoonoses.
Examples of multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional project management include being Director of the EPIC partnership which advises the Scottish Government on animal disease outbreaks. Prof. Gunn created the SRUC research team in Inverness (Epidemiology Research Unit). He was also part of the management teams for the concluding EC BVD Control and ParaTB Tools Projects and was part of the Defra Surveillance Review. He has extensive experience working with industry and helped initiate several cattle health programmes, including HI-Health, the Scottish and UK Pig Health and Cattle Health Schemes and helped initiate and underpin Cattle Health Certification Standards (CHeCS). His applied research has formed the basis of several high scoring REF Impact Case Studies for SRUC /University of Edinburgh.
George was a visiting Professor in Veterinary Epidemiology at the University of Glasgow, a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons specialist in Veterinary Epidemiology, Diplomat at the European College for Veterinary Public Health and remains a Diplomat at the European College of Cattle Health Management. He has frequently acted as an external examiner at institutions including the Universities of Edinburgh, Surrey, London, Dublin and Utrecht.
George Gunn is Highland born and bred, and still runs a family croft near Inverness in his spare time.
