About our Research

Our research program includes both basic science to understand the molecular and biological basis for disease, as well as applied science to improve the lives of pets and people.

  • With a focus on One Health, our program brings together veterinarians, physicians, and other scientists to address public health threats affecting both people and animals.
  • Our translational research approach aims to take laboratory findings directly to clients in a clinical setting.
  • Ongoing clinical trials in our hospitals test research discoveries to develop better methods of disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Our faculty, students, staff, and research partners are committed to discovery, service, and training future researchers and veterinarians.
