Research at the college covers the gamut of living organisms, from bacteria to toxins to virtually all animal species, including humans. It encompasses sciences ranging from complex molecular biology to epidemiology to applied medicine to public health and economics.
The focus of study, service, and discovery at the College of Veterinary Medicine is to improve health in the broadest sense: the health of animals, of people, and of the environment. Join us if your passion is to bridge the gap between basic and applied science, translating findings from the laboratory into useful therapies in the clinical setting.
