2017 Robert Dixon Memorial Symposium

31 May 2017

Robert Dixon graduated from the University of Sydney in 1973 with a BSc(Vet) degree before completing his BVSc degree in 1974. He completed his PhD in 1980 in New Zealand and returned to the University of Sydney in 1983 to take up an academic appointment within the Faculty of Veterinary Science. For many years Robert held the Faculty position of Sub-Dean Animal Welfare as well as serving on the University Animal Ethics Committee.

Robert impressed his friends and colleagues with his determination,
passion, positive attitude and sense of humour as he battled with ill-health throughout his life.

Robert’s email signature finished with a quote from Mohandas Gandhi - “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”.
