Research programs at the College of Veterinary Medicine comprise over 140 faculty representing more than 20 species in 9 research areas of emphasis.
We also embrace transformative research. As defined by the National Science Foundation, this kind of research “involves ideas, discoveries, or tools that radically change our understanding of an important existing scientific or engineering concept or educational practice or leads to the creation of a new paradigm or field of science, engineering, or education. Such research challenges current understanding or provides pathways to new frontiers.”
Our goal is to provide solutions to problems of particular importance to animal and human health and biomedical research.

Thakur Launches International Group to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance
As bacteria worldwide continue to develop resistance to life-saving drugs, NC State College of Veterinary Medicine researchers are joining a new group of international scientists dedicated to finding new ways to fight back. The global partnership, co-led by Sid Thakur, director of global health at the CVM and NC State, is a collaboration between faculty
With Genetic Counseling, CVM Takes Deeper Dives into Dog DNA
At-home DNA tests can uncover that your mixed-breed rescue is 1/8th Jack Russell terrier. A saliva sample sent through the mail can estimate how big a dog may get, if they have drug sensitivities or detail their chance of developing a heart condition. The tests can be revelatory. They can also just be the beginning.

Our investigations are inspired by the animals we treat, the medical conditions we see on a daily basis, and through our contacts with animal owners and collaborators who work with human diseases. Our research focuses on developing real world solutions from which animals and their owners can benefit. From creating artificial limbs that fuse with an animal’s bone so that it is integrated into the body to improving the understanding of virus that impact our agricultural animals, the results of what our world-class researchers do improves the quality of veterinary and human medicine.

Centennial Biomedical Campus was built as a new partnership model committed
to brining academia, government, and industry together in one place to advance medical science.
The College’s student research activities are designed to provide a rich research experience and to train the animal health and biomedical researchers of tomorrow. Students are mentored closely by dedicated faculty.. Veterinary students engaged in our summer research programs participate in collective experiences such as weekly seminars, field trips and other activities to increase their understanding of the scientific process, responsible conduct of research, improve their written and oral communication skills and to gain insight into the wide range of professional paths available to them in academia, government and industry.
The College actively builds partnerships with grant-giving organizations, which means we are able to fund student research. Our funders include the National Institutes of Health, the Boehringer Ingelheim Veterinary Scholars program, the Morris Animal Foundation, and the College’s Fund for Discovery, among others.
