Veterinary Studies

Our research programmes provide excellent training opportunities for both biological and veterinary graduates and address both basic and clinical problems in the biosciences, with applications in veterinary and human medicine. Research spans cell and molecular science, whole animal physiology and population medicine. Two research areas are available: comparative physiology and medicine: our understanding of animal disease, together with the superb facilities at the RVC, means that we are well placed to contribute to the way in which human diseases are diagnosed and treated; llivestock production and health: there is international recognition of the need for new approaches to meet the growing challenges of livestock production, and to control infectious diseases that threaten humans and animals. Underpinning research across these themes are animal welfare, biomechanics, genetics, bioinformatics, pathology and epidemiology, economics and public health.
