Professor Tim Gruffydd-Jones to receive Feline Foundation Award

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) will this week recognise University of Bristol feline medical specialist, Professor Tim Gruffydd-Jones, BVetMed, PhD, with the 2014 AVMF/Winn Feline Foundation Award.

The AVMA will honour some of the nation's top veterinary surgeons, individuals and organisations during several events and ceremonies. The recipients of the awards are dedicated professionals who have made a difference in the lives of both animals and people across the country and the globe.

The AVMF/Winn Feline Foundation Award is given annually to a distinguished member of the association. It honours the recipient's long-term commitment to advancing feline research.

Professor Gruffydd-Jones has devoted much of his career to feline medicine and has won several other awards for his work, including the BSAVA Woodrow Award. He is interested in all aspects of feline medicine, but particularly infectious diseases, gastroenterology, endocrine disorders and breeding problems.

He was chairman of the Feline Advisory Bureau, now known as International Cat Care, from 1980-2002 and is currently deputy chairman of Cats Protection, the UK's largest cat rescue charity.
