Our cross-cutting Research Centres encourage collaboration across different subject areas, and are enabled by access to state of the art facilities.
The College has particular strengths in veterinary epidemiology, whole animal physiology, comparative pathology, public health, animal welfare, immunology, protozoology and medicine. We also have expertise in agricultural economics and are building our expertise in mathematical biology.
Through research the RVC strives to ensure animals are contented, interested in life and performing well.
Biology has become increasingly quantitative, with collaborations among mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists and biologists being essential.
Established in 2005, and now a leading specialist veterinary neuromuscular disease laboratory in Europe.
We address key questions about how animals are structured and how they move, how movement is controlled and what limits performance.
Developing a further understanding of the mechanisms that regulate the growth and survival of the equine embryo and fetus.
We conduct world-class research into tuberculosis at all levels ranging from molecules to metapopulations.
We recruit PhD students usually with a degree in a veterinary sciences, immunology, molecular biology etc.
Our researchers strive for a better understanding of the diseases which affect both humans and animals through population studies.
A state-of-the-art facility for infection and immunity research including open-plan offices and high biosecurity laboratories.
Clinical trials help us to gain a better understanding of diseases which affect animals and ways in which we can improve animal health and welfare.
This new Centre has been created to be a leader in the development and translation of vaccines and regenerative medicine approaches for animal and human health.
Using powerful imaging capabilities of x-ray tomography we are able to image and analyse a variety of samples, including bones, fossils, soft tissues, insects, synthetic materials and more.
The Hawkshead Centre for Translational Research and Clinical Imaging is a specifically designed clinical unit dedicated to innovative health programmes and clinical care activities.
Created in 2020 at our Hawkshead Campus in a drive to provide state-of-the art imaging facilities for researchers, clinicians and contract workers.
A purpose-built facility. It contains microscopes capable of experiments ranging from basic microscopy of cells or tissues to complex imaging.
