Research in Applied Clinical Science involves the multidisciplinary study of a wide range of diseases in horses and companion animals (mainly dogs and cats), with a focus on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and outcome of various metabolic, infectious, immune-mediated and degenerative diseases. Naturally-occurring disease in companion animals is useful as models for human disease.
Key interdisciplinary research programs involving university-wide, national or international collaborations include:
Emerging areas of research include biomarkers for enhanced animal health, minimally invasive and image-guided therapy, stem cell therapy, regenerative medicine and hemostasis. Other areas of clinical specialization include surgery, neurology, radiology, anesthesia and critical care.
