Professor Jacky Reid



Professor Jacky Reid is an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the University of Glasgow and CEO of the innovative research company NewMetrica Ltd.

Jacky and a multi-disciplinary team of renowned academics from the University of Glasgow have dedicated over 20 years to researching the largely neglected field of pain and quality of life measurement in animals and NewMetrica was established to build on and extend this pioneering work.

Jacky is a veterinary surgeon with very varied experience in the veterinary world (her PhD was a study involving hen’s eggshells) including clinical practice, clinical anaesthesia, applied clinical research and teaching. She is a recognised RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia, a European Veterinary Specialist in Anaesthesia and Analgesia and recipient of the BSAVA Simon Award in 2016.

Since retiring from the Veterinary School in Glasgow she has enjoyed continuing, from within NewMetrica, novel pain and quality of life research with colleagues in the Glasgow Pain and Welfare Group (Professors Nolan and Scott and Dr Wiseman), which was awarded the inaugural UFAW Companion Animal Welfare Award for significant innovation or advance in animal welfare in 2009.
