Research, Discovery & Innovation
WORLD-CLASS PROGRAMS ADVANCE THROUGH RESEARCH AND DISCOVERY
Research advances our practice of veterinary medicine and the health of our animals throughdiscovery and innovation of new drugs, vaccines, and techniques. Research informs how and what we teach. Research is at the heart of every great educational program.
Endowed chairs help attract and retain preeminent scholars and industry leaders who raise the prominence and impact of our program.
We have begun the process of establishing research centers of excellence to advance sustainable livestock systems, equine health, and comparative medicine. Comparative medicine seeks to understand why some diseases behave similarly in both animals and humans, and why some behave so differently. Discoveries from comparative medicine research can improve the lives of mankind and our animals.
