Roger Smith, Professor of Equine Orthopaedics, Royal Veterinary College

Roger is Professor of Equine Orthopaedics at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC). He currently divides his time equally between running a specialist orthopaedic service within the RVC and continuing to direct research into equine tendon disease. He qualified as a veterinary surgeon from Cambridge University in 1987 and, after 2 years in practice, returned to academia to undertake further clinical training as a Resident in Equine Studies at the Royal Veterinary College. Following his residency, he undertook a 3 year research project culminating in the award of a PhD for his studies on the extracellular matrix of equine tendon. He remained at the Royal Veterinary College, first as a Lecturer in Equine Surgery, then as Senior Lecturer in Equine Surgery before his appointment to a Professorship in December 2003
