At the Department of Veterinary Medicine they foster a strong research ethos and have developed a Centre for Veterinary Sciences as an umbrella for the research enterprise. They pride theirselves on their approach to developing medicine (veterinary and human) through both fundamental and applied research, and on creating bridges between the lab and the clinic.
