Dr Tim Nuttall


Dr Tim Nuttall graduated from the University of Bristol in Zoology and Veterinary Science in 1992. After three years in general practice he became a Resident in Veterinary Dermatology at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at The University of Edinburgh, where he later studied for a PhD in the immunopathogenesis of canine atopic dermatitis.

Tim joined The University of Liverpool in 2001 as a Lecturer, and since 2004 Senior Lecturer, in Veterinary Dermatology. Tim is an RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Dermatology, and has established a busy dermatology clinic, which has conducted a series of pivotal clinical trials. With his colleagues, he also has an active research programme studying atopic dermatitis, microbial infections and antimicrobial resistance. Tim is the author of over 60 clinical and scientific publications, and he has presented nearly 100 lectures throughout the world. He is also a co-author of the second edition of A Colour Handbook of Skin Diseases of the Dog and Cat, and has contributed to other textbooks in the UK, US and Japan. Tim has served on scientific committees for the British Small Animal Veterinary Association, European Society for Veterinary Dermatology, International Committee on Atopic Diseases in Animals, Bella Moss Foundation, and the UK government, and is a co-editor of Veterinary Dermatology. In 2011, Tim was appointed to the Council of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

In his (increasingly rare) spare time, Tim enjoys Munro bagging (233 and counting), mountain biking, kayaking and single malt whisky.
