Research programs at the College of Veterinary Medicine comprise over 100 faculty representing more than 25 disciplines working with more than 20 species. Researchers address critical issues in biomedical, agricultural and biological sciences through a broad variety of experimental approaches and techniques – ranging from basic discovery in molecular biology to application of new technology in the veterinary teaching hospital or in herds and flocks of the state’s livestock industry.
The overall goal of the College’s research program is to provide solutions to problems of particular importance to North Carolina and to address problems of importance to society at large.

Flipping the Switch on Itch: Researchers Identify Neuropeptide Involved in Transmitting Itch Signal to Brain in Eczema
Researchers from North Carolina State University have pinpointed a particular neuropeptide associated with transmitting itch signals in mice with atopic dermatitis. The work sheds further light on the pathways involved in transmitting itch sensations from the peripheral (skin) to the central (spinal cord) nervous system. “You can think of itch being transmitted from the skin
