The partnership between the Department of Clinical Studies and Royal Canin has continued to be strengthened through various activities since 2019. Recently on November 25, 2021, Royal Canin donated a state of the art and the latest Zeiss Axiolab digital microscrope with accompanying camera and a high resolution screen. On the 3rd February, 2022, the incoming Regional Manager Dr. Funke was brought to the Department for introduction by the Royal Canin Scientific Communications Manager Dr. Jeanne Mwakugu, accompanied by the outgoing Regional Manager Kim. Kim and Jeanne have been very instrumental in the activities of the partnership, which have majorly benefitted the department. The department welcomes Dr. Funke to continue from where Kim has left. There are several contributions to the partnership that have been promised and the department looks forward to their accomplishments.
