host to four areas of livestock production science; cattle, cattle health, livestock production, and pigs and porcine diseases.
Our research contributes to solutions to important society challenges such as antibiotic resistance, food safety and lifestyle diseases. We develop animal models, which are used to improve animal welfare and treatment and prevention of diseases for both animals and humans. Our department comprises eight sections described below.
Animal Welfare and Disease Control
promote disease control and animal welfare from a population- and society oriented perspective.
Comparative Pediatrics and Nutrition
studies health and disease during early development in animals and humans.
Parasitology and Aquatic Pathobiology
performs research on prevention and control of parasitic diseases and other infectious diseases for humans and animals including fish.
Neuroanatomy, neurodegenerative disorders, electrophysiology, the cardiovascular system, biomechanics, animal welfare, disease models, pathogenesis evaluation, veterinary pathologist diagnostics, veterinary contingency.
Preclinical Disease Biology
studies all aspects of the development of models for human and veterinary diseases in mammals.
