Research

Research at NC State College of Veterinary Medicine addresses the complex issues that affect animal and human health in an interdisciplinary approach that is changing the way discovery happens and is making a powerful difference.

We Advance Animal and Human Health

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.

We Drive Veterinary Innovation

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.

We Engage Students

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.

Supporting Student ResearchSubtitle

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.
