College of Veterinary Medicine


Exceptional veterinary medicine is about more than providing quality care. It's also about being on the forefront of ideas and discoveries. The College of Veterinary Medicine engages in research that challenges perceived limitations and broadens our ideas of what's possible. Our research produces knowledge that benefits both animal and human health. We collaborate with industry, government and the broader community. For more information, contact Frank Blecha, Associate Dean for Research.
