Our mission is to educate the next generation of veterinarians and biomedical scientists, and
to conduct novel biomedically-oriented research that is integrative in scope, approach, and methodology.

VIBS training programs deliver quality learning experiences for undergraduate, graduate, and medical professional students, preparing them for contributions to society through professional service, scientific inquiry, communication in scholarly journals, and robust educational outreach programs developed within the department and in partnership with outside agencies and organizations. State-of-the-art research is conducted across a variety of interactive focus areas, each of which brings the expertise of multiple disciplines to bear on complex issues of societal importance and maximizes each student’s and investigator’s potential for interdisciplinary synergy.
