Dissertations by Veterinary Physiotherapy students from Writtle University College (WUC) will be presented to an international audience, in Zurich, Switzerland.

Scott Blake, Heidi Hodgson and Gemma Anthony's abstracts received approval, as did Veterinary Physiotherapy student Shenna Young's research with BSc Equine Sport Therapy and Rehabilitation student Katie Hayward. Their research will be showcased at the Ninth International Conference on Canine and Equine Locomotion by dissertation supervisor Dr. Roberta Ferro de Godoy. The event, which had been scheduled for 2020, has been postponed to September 2021, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Roberta Ferro de Godoy commented: "I am proud of the hard work and dedication our students have displayed at a challenging time. The Conference in 2021 will allow them to share their research with a global professional community of academics, veterinarians and veterinary physiotherapists."
