Focusing on the health, disease and welfare of animals

Animals are a cornerstone of society and important for human health. At the faculty of Veterinary Medicine, we perform fundamental and strategic research focused on the health, disease and welfare of animals and on related public and environmental health aspects. This knowledge should provide a solid basis for novel strategies that benefit veterinary practice, human health, and the economy.
