The LIU College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) has a robust and progressive research program that is supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the United States Department of Agriculture-National Institute of Food and Agriculture, and other extramural sources. The primary areas of research focus by the faculty include Infectious Diseases, Comparative Medicine & Therapeutics, and Veterinary Medical Education. Research faculty have access to core equipment at LIU CVM and at neighboring institutions, such as Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories and Stony Brook University. A robust graduate program is being developed to train the next generation of veterinarians and scientists.
Research emphasis areas interface with existing LIU strengths, including Pharmaceutical Sciences, Precision Medicine, Public Health, and Business & Entrepreneurship. CVM faculty are strategically clustered into research teams to promote interdisciplinary research between cluster areas, existing LIU faculty, and strategic external partners. Additional support faculty and staff include pathologists, postdoctoral fellows, technicians, graduate students, and undergraduates who will support cluster research activity.
