Support the School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences
The School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has a primary focus in infectious diseases. Infectious diseases caused by well-known pathogens as well as newly emerging pathogens have an increasingly profound effect on human and animal health. Many pathogens which cause disease in livestock have homologous counterparts which affect human beings and
cause disease. It is becoming increasingly clear that to control the spread of infectious diseases, we need a greater understanding of how pathogens interact with the host, how the host responds to these pathogens, and how pathogens persist outside the host in the environment and how they are transmitted to susceptible hosts.
The School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences has an interdisciplinary group of faculty in areas including, biomedical sciences, epidemiology, microbiology, bacteriology, virology, immunology, pathology, cell biology, genomics, molecular biology, and a primary focus in infectious diseases.
The school offers undergraduate degrees in Veterinary Science and Veterinary Technology, a master’s degree in Veterinary Science and also has a Professional Program in Veterinary Medicine through a partnership with the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine (ISU-CVM). The inaugural class in the professional program began their studies in Fall 2007 and every Fall semester another 25 students who experience state-of-the-art facilities in the Animal Sciences building and the benefits of a small class size are admitted.
