Inaugural lecture: The story of two Mellanbys, some dogs, cats, mice, sheep, penguins, one monkey and vitamin D

In his inaugural lecture, Richard will discuss how studies on dogs were pivotal in the discovery of vitamin D and how research on man's best friend, and other animals, continues to illuminate the ongoing debate of the importance of vitamin D on health beyond the skeleton.

He will also discuss some of his group's recent research which is showing the remarkable effects vitamin D can have on shaping the immune system.

This lecture will be followed by a reception in the area outside of the auditorium. The lecture is free and open to all.
