Focus Box - RVC Animal Welfare Science and Ethics

Welfare concerns the mind as well as the body. Through research the RVC strives to ensure animals are contented, interested in life and performing well.

Our research centres bring together scientists with similar needs and interests. Research group leaders are experienced scientists who act as mentors and encourage collaboration across different subject areas.

The College has particular strengths in veterinary epidemiology, whole animal physiology, comparative pathology, public health, immunology, protozoology and medicine. We also have expertise in agricultural economics and are working towards building our expertise in mathematical biology.
