Lucy Davison

Lucy Davison graduated from Newnham College and Cambridge Veterinary School in 1997 and spent several years in small animal veterinary practice in the north east of England before undertaking a PhD in canine diabetes mellitus at the Royal Veterinary College.  She then undertook a residency in Small Animal Medicine at Cambridge, passing the DSAM and DipECVIM examinations in 2006, becoming a European Specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine.

After a year as a Clinical Physician at Cambridge Vet School, Lucy was awarded a four -year Wellcome Trust Intermediate Clinical Fellowship in Diabetes with Professor John Todd at the Cambridge Institute for Medical research, which she completed in 2011. This was followed by a Wellcome Trust Veterinary Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics in Oxford.  Lucy was appointed as a University Lecturer in Genetics and Medicine at Cambridge in November 2014 and divides her time between research, teaching and clinical practice.  She describes her teaching style as ‘practical’ and ‘geared towards the challenges that general practitioners face.’

Lucy enjoys all aspects of small animal medicine, but has particular interests in Diabetes Mellitus, Endocrinology, Immunology and the genetics of complex disease. Her family pets include an elderly diabetic cat, a friendly Jack Russell terrier and two ancient tortoises.
