In our college, veterinarians and other biomedical scientists study life forms from bacteria and fungi to humans and animals, as individuals and as populations.

We are home to disciplines from cell and molecular biology to epidemiology, applied medicine, and geospatial analysis.

We collaborate across disciplines on boundary-pushing investigations that advance knowledge and benefit animal and human health.


Uniting approaches from diverse fields to expand knowledge and translate that knowledge into new treatments, smarter public policy, a more secure food supply, and healthier animals, people, and environment.

That’s the Power of I.
