PAS is dedicated to;

  • Research on a high, international level within embryology and stem cells, animal welfare, disease models, electro physiology, pathogenesis evaluation and veterinary pathological diagnostics, and in this way contribute to diagnostics and treatment of sick humans and animals.
  • Teaching. The teaching of the section is vital to the veterinary bachelor and master programme and to the Animal Science programme. We prepare the students for research, diagnostics and clinical work. We educate master students and PhD students on a high, international level within the research areas of the section.
  • Veterinary Contingency, partly consulting cases for the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration, partly veterinary Contingency which receives all cadavers and organs for observation of notifiable animal diseases. Furthermore we are responsible for the surveillance of cattle abortion and the surveillance of TSE (BSE and scrapie) in Denmark.

Students are always welcome to contact us for available projects.
