Veterinary science plays a crucial role in society and it is important that veterinarians are involved. However, there are concerns about a growing gap in the quality of veterinary science compared with other biomedical sciences, and about falling recruitment of veterinarians into research. Andrea Nolan and Massimo Palmarini, on behalf of the rcvs Research Subcommittee, discuss these concerns and the steps being taken to encourage more veterinary graduates into a career in research.
