Research at The Royal Veterinary College is of international quality.
The Research Assessment Exercise in 2008 ranked the RVC as England's best veterinary school, amongst institutions whose research is exclusively veterinary related. A total of 55% of our submitted academic staff were viewed as producing 'world class' or 'internationally excellent' research.
As a self-governing college within the University of London, the RVC attracts a unique blend of basic and clinical scientists who work together in interdisciplinary teams within one research division.
The research environment is enriched by its close proximity to international centres of excellence in biomedical and biological sciences, which allows us to benefit directly from expertise in functional genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics support.
Our overall approach tends to extend from the molecular level to the whole animal or population of animals. The disciplines that underpin our research effort across these themes include Animal Welfare, Biomechanics, Genetics, Bioinformatics, Pathology and Epidemiology and Public Health.
