Prof Gunn-Moore graduated with distinction from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Edinburgh, in 1991.

Prof Gunn-Moore spoke at the Hill’s pre-ISFM Congress symposium on feline endocrinopathies and hyperthyroidism.

Claire Bessant, chief executive of FAB, the parent body of ISFM, said: “I am proud that FAB helped launch Danièlle’s feline career with a scholarship – she has certainly returned the investment many times over through her teaching, clinical and research work with cats, by giving her time to us as an FAB trustee and member of the FAB feline expert panel, as well as being associate editor of JFMS, an ISFM ambassador and a member of the ISFM veterinary committee.”
 
Next year’s ISFM European Congress programme on feline diagnostics will be held in Budapest between June 13 and 17. Details will be posted on www.isfm.net
