Change to Vetsina board as CTO of Roslin Technologies joins team



Professor Jacqueline Matthews, chief technology officer of Roslin Technologies Limited, has joined the board at Vetsina Animal Diagnostics Ltd as a non-executive director.


She replaces Glen Illing who has stepped down.


Vetsina CEO Dr. Simon Wheeler said: "We are grateful to Glen Illing for his support while we established Vetsina and thank him for his contributions at the early stages of the company. We are excited to now be able to welcome Professor Matthews to the board as we move on with Vetsina's development. Professor Matthews' experience and skills are highly relevant to the work we are doing in developing innovative diagnostics for animal health and veterinary use."


A qualified veterinarian, Professor Matthews has worked in animal health for over 30 years. Until 2019, she was based in academia, where she has led research programmes. These projects had wide industry impact relating to livestock infectious disease and generated more than 140 associated peer-reviewed publications and several lay articles.


Matthews currently has a ministerial appointment on the UK Veterinary Products Committee and sits on two UKRI BBSRC Committees.


In 2019, she moved to Roslin Technologies, where she takes charge of strategic partnerships and manages its R&D programme, bringing scientific innovations to the agriculture and animal health sectors.
