The Royal Veterinary College attracts talented veterinary and biological scientists who work together in interdisciplinary teams.  

Our research is of the highest quality and has an impact on the health and welfare of humans and animals around the world.

  • RVC researchers benefit from being close to London's international centres of excellence in biomedical and biological science
  • Researchers have easy access to expertise in functional genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics support
  • Co-operation and collaboration between clinicians and basic scientist leads to high quality research outcomes
  • RVC scientists are focused on bridging the gap between early scientific discovery and its translation into new therapies for patients

Our approach extends from the molecular level to the whole animal or population of animals. Underpinning research across these themes are animal welfare, biomechanics, genetics, bioinformatics, pathology and epidemiology and public health.

RVC researchers are actively involved in developing and delivering postgraduate programmes at masters and doctoral level. These specialist programmes help develop future researchers and professionals with specialist knowledge who go on to work in industry, government and teaching, both within the UK and internationally.

Our research programmes are overseen by our Research Strategy Committee.
