The veterinary college’s exceptional mix of basic and clinical scientists, its newly upgraded facilities and technological resources, and its thriving graduate program all combine to make this institution an effective force in the research world with great potential to expand its efforts in bridging animal and human health.


Faculty members and graduate students at the WCVM participate and collaborate in a number of multi-disciplinary research groups that bring together scientists who work on campus or in other centres around the world. In the past decade, the WCVM has encouraged collaborations between basic and clinical researchers to increase its expertise in translational health research and to optimize the college’s resources.

Research publications

From the journal Advances in Parasitology to the journal Zoonoses and Public Health, WCVM scientists disseminate their research results to the broader research community through the publishing of articles and manuscripts.  This enables researchers to build upon the work of others in an ever-expanding collection of knowledge.
